Dodge Nature Preschool is offering this one-day conference to give educators an opportunity to observe and learn about nature-based education. Find inspiration, engage in dialogue with colleagues and learn practical ideas to help incorporate nature-based education into your classroom and school environment.

Join us at the Learning Conference to:
– Hike with a guide through preschool and Nature Center grounds.
– Observe in preschool classrooms.
– Engage with materials in our resource room
– Participate in breakout sessions:
Habitat Hike – With the guidance of a Dodge Nature Center naturalist, learn about local habitats and ecosystems. Find out what natural resources you can go deeper with at your own setting.
Nature’s Curriculum – Dodge Nature Preschool teachers will share how nature is used to guide their curriculum in all domains. Get hands-on with art experiences, wild edibles, animal encounters, and more.

Cost is TBD per participant. This fee includes a light breakfast, lunch and materials. Please come prepared to spend time outdoors.
