This workshop is for anyone who wants to learn more about our magnificent Coast Redwoods. The workshop is especially useful for classroom teachers, docents and outdoor educators who teach groups at Armstrong. Participants will receive a CD of Redwood Ed, a 400+ page guide to learning and teaching about redwoods. We will explore Redwood Ed, practice some of the activities, and increase our understanding of outdoor and environmental education. Participants will also receive specimens and additional resources to use in their curriculm. (Be sure to bring a tote or large bag, or two!)
Mike will host a follow-up workshop in October called Hike with Mike, teaching how to lead groups in Armstrong. Redwood Ed participants are encouraged to register.
