Other Programs and Services

 

Four Winds also offers a variety of natural science presentations and workshops for formal and non-formal educators (classroom teachers, home school parents, camp staff, recreation department staff, afterschool program instructors, preschool teachers, daycare providers, parents, pre-service teachers, etc.) that will bring participants outdoors in their own neighborhood and community to learn about and explore the natural world. The goal of such courses is to teach educators how to use the outdoors as a teaching resource, including, when developmentally appropriate, how to incorporate field studies into the curriculum. These workshops include interdisciplinary ways to integrate outdoor learning in the curriculum.
