The first ever Conservation and Inquiry Camp will be held at Rowe Crane Sanctuary located at 44450 Elm Island Road, Gibbon, from 9:00 a.m. July 10, 2012 to 12:30 p.m. on July 11. This is a unique and exciting opportunity for all teachers. We will experience the benefits of teaching through outdoor exploration. Our adventure will include studies of water, weather and wildlife as they relate to the standards for physical, earth, and life sciences. Participants will leave with ready-to-use lessons, increased confidence in taking students out of the classroom, and a deeper knowledge of how to connect the standards to real-life applications in their own regions.
Our experience will include a late evening and an early morning, so participants are invited to spend the night in the Iain Nicholson Audubon Center free of charge. Participants will need to bring a sleeping bag, cot, and/ or small air mattress. There will not be shower facilities available. Meals provided during the camp will include Tuesday's breakfast and supper, and Wednesday's breakfast and lunch. Participants will need to bring a notrash lunch for Tuesday. If you have questions, contact Deanna Stall or Emily Jameson. For more information, pricing information, or to register, visit odie.
