On March 28, MassWildlife and MassAudubon’s Broadmeadow Brook Sanctuary invite teachers and educators to participate in a Growing Up WILD Workshop in Worcester that focuses on connecting young children to the natural world. This workshop will encourage the child’s natural sense of exploration and curiosity with activities that develop the child’s emerging cognitive and social skills. If you work with children grades K-2, then please join us for this day of fun, interactive learning. Introducing children to the natural world at a young age will foster a love for nature and a sense of stewardship in them that will mature and strengthen as the child grows up. Challenge yourself to make an impact on the next generation of budding environmentalists.
MassWildlife holds these workshops in various locations throughout the state, so if this one does not work for you, then keep an eye out for other upcoming workshops. You can visit the MassWildlife website for a list of workshops.
