EDUCATORS WK 2014
Enjoy Life on a "Sandy Delta" in the beautiful Hocking HIlls! Full of learning, new friends, and fun, this is an overnight retreat for environmental educators, naturalists, and teachers and nature lovers!! Once again, keynote presenter and performer Chris Rowlands will provide a final evening of song, laughter and learning! Join us as we spend the week experiencing the natural history of Ohio at Camp Oty'Okwa. The 700 acre camp is under conservation easement and includes a dedicated state nature preserve, beautiful woodlands, hiking trails, and wonderful rock outcrops. Participants will be encouraged to broaden their knowledge and learn techniques that will help them improve their skills as an educator. The delicate balance of people, natural resource use, and technological advances is at the heart of many local, national, and global new stories. Throughout the week, pariticpants will explore hands-on best practice strategies for introducing people to the natural world and these issues. Using their professional expertise and experience, top naturalists and educators from around the state will facilitate sessions using the camp and local resources. Sessions will provide opportunities to gain an understanding of topics related to state standards by immersing the participants in a natural setting and a stimulating learning environment.
