Pollinators are vital to creating and maintaining habitats and ecosystems and for our food supply. Educators play a key role in connecting young people with opportunities to protect pollinators and teach others. To learn how you can help this effort, attend this session that will cover resources, project and program ideas and best practices for engaging youth through hands-on learning, and share details on a new professional development workshop, "Pollinators in the Science Classroom".
Webinar Details: Join Wilderness Inquiry to learn how your students can become a Hero for MN fresh waterways and the species that rely on them. By learning about pressures on local waterways, students can use their knowledge to design and implement a service project that improves habitat for species. Students can extend that learning while paddling in 24’ Voyageur canoes on their local waters through our Canoemobile experience. We’ll provide a hands-on activity to use in your own classroom and show you how to make canoeing accessible and welcoming for all.
