Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery to Offer Outdoor Inquiries Workshop in March

With spring just around the corner, now is a great time think ahead to getting outdoors and better connected with the natural world around you! In fact, whether you’re a teacher or a parent, Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery will be offering a wonderful weekend environmental education workshop!

Ever wish to better connect your students, Scouts, etc with nature but don’t feel ready to do so and/or at ease as you feel you lack the knowledge base to do so? Or perhaps you’re a teacher and would like to become more comfortable with the outdoors yourself? If so, here is a great workshop for you!

On Friday, March 25th, 2011, the hatchery will serve as host for a one day Outdoor Inquiries Workshop. This one day training event is intended to introduce teachers and nonformal educators to strategies and tools for using the outdoors to promote student engagement in inquiry investigations. The development of the Outdoor Inquiries® program has been supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation, and each person in attendance will spend the day learning strategies and tools for using the outdoors to promote student engagement in inquiry investigations. All attendees will receive a copy of the book, Outdoor Inquiries, Taking Science Investigations Outside of the Classroom, along with a field journal and tools and a starter toolkit for your outdoor inquiry adventures with those you teach! Come find out just how easy and simple it can be to connect children with nature by letting the outdoors tell its own story!


Pre-registration for the workshop is required, and the fee per person is $55.00. Cost covers Outdoor Inquiries guidebook, starter kit, all programming and materials, lunch and snacks. Attendees will also receive other bonus resources and materials. Registration deadline is scheduled for Friday, March 11th, 2011. For more information and/or to register, please contact Environmental Education/Outreach Specialist Amanda G. Patrick at 270-343-3797 or via email: Amanda_Patrick@fws.gov

  

Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery is proud to sponsor educational workshops and events that help the public learn more about our incredible natural and cultural heritage.
