Professional Development for Teachers at Trees For Tomorrow
Teachers have a unique opportunity to participate in professional development workshops and receive graduate credits by taking educational courses offered at Trees For Tomorrow this summer. A natural resource specialty school located in Eagle River, Wisconsin, Trees For Tomorrow offers field-based programs that place participants in direct contact with natural resources that support human needs. These programs develop awareness, knowledge, and understanding of natural resources to help participants make informed decisions regarding the management and wise use of those resources. This experience inspires and promotes stewardship of natural resources for use by future generations.
The location of the campus enables the participants to take full advantage of the living classroom that the northern forest provides, so each session includes field experiences to give teachers hands-on exposure to the topics of study. This experiential outdoor learning method is a tradition at Trees For Tomorrow. Teachers will leave these workshops inspired with fresh ideas to modify the curriculum for their own classrooms.
Courses offered this summer: Nature Photography and Wood Energy. Nature Photography will be held July 11-15, 2012 and will be available for 3 graduate credits. Wood Energy is scheduled for July 23-25, 2012 and available for 2 graduate credits. A complete description of each of these courses can be found online at www.TreesForTomorrow or call 715-479-6456 for a brochure and registration application. Online registration is also available.
Trees For Tomorrow, the only accredited environmental education center in Wisconsin, is located on nearly 40 acres in Eagle River. Trees For Tomorrow’s campus includes National Forest property under permit from the USDA Forest Service.
