The hands-on, interdisciplinary lessons cover subjects ranging from environmental science and stewardship; to human populations, health, and land use issues for grades pre-K through grade 12.
Workshop participants will receive a copy of the FLP “Resources for Learning” Curriculum Guide to take home at the end of the workshop. The workshop qualifies for N.C. Environmental Education Certificate Criteria 1 and 1 CEU credit with homework.
