Nature as Teacher: Exploring and Playing at the Water’s Edge April 4, 2022
Water is a powerful tool for any educator to know how to use. It is where many animals live and hide; it keeps plants (and people!) healthy and growing; it is a wonderful medium for imaginative play. But water has to be respected. This training is for early educators and afterschool professionals to learn about Vermont’s watersheds, including living and non-living components. Join our Naturalists at the Green Mountain Audubon Center to see how we discover, play, and manage risk at the water’s edge! THIS TRAINING WILL HAVE TIME OUTDOORS including at a muddy pond or stream! Proper attire is required!
This training will take place at the Green Mountain Audubon Center in Huntington. This training will have both indoor and outdoor components. We will be visiting at least one body of water on the Audubon property that will include walking outside on uneven terrain and can include stairs, rocky river banks, and muddy trails. It will be fun and very active, but not your standard "stay inside and learn" type of training! Parking is at the Green Mountain Audubon Center's education barn at 255 Sherman Hollow Road. Masks are required inside our buildings. Food is not provided, please bring your own beverages and snacks, however we will have hot water and tea. Please bring a reusable mug.
