Sharing Nature: An Educator’s Week

July 1419, 2024


Learn practical approaches and add inspiration to your environmental education curriculum during this action-packed program. Our experienced and enthusiastic instructors share their favorite approaches, methods, and activities for engaging both children and adults with nature.

Workshops using techniques in art, music, theater, journaling, and other disciplines will be presented. Participate in a host of classic Audubon Camp field trips, including a boat trip around the restored Atlantic Puffin and Tern colony on Eastern Egg Rock, intertidal explorations, and hiking through Hog Island's unspoiled spruce-fir forest. In a beautiful outdoor setting, these experiences provide a wonderful opportunity to learn new methods of teaching to bring home to your students. We'll explore citizen science, create inquiry-based lessons on birds and other topics, and demonstrate low and high-tech methods of teaching.

Prerequisites: Please note that for these programs, there are NO prerequisites, and less experienced/enthusiastic spouses/friends are more than welcome to enroll in all sessions

Note: Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) are available for completing the course from the University of Southern Maine (After course completion you will have access to a link to register for these credits.)

The teachers were patient, knowledgeable and willing to change course to do what was best for us.​"  - John Sullens, Maryland educator, 2022 camper
