Teacher workshops are offered throughout the year for teachers and youth group leaders of all grade levels. We can also develop an environmental education workshop for the teachers at your school, or for your youth group leaders.
There is no charge for this service, however, we require a minimum of 15 participants. Dates are subject to staff availability. Call (815) 678-4532 ext. 8117 and speak with the Education Outreach Coordinator for more information.
