Focus Workshop: Urban Nature-based Early Childhood Education

Let’s explore the intersection of environmental education and early childhood to encourage our next generation of scientists! This workshop provides the essential information needed to:

Inspire your inner curiosity of the natural world
Explore your local environment
Identify local flora and fauna
Interpret different habitats and natural cycles
Apply this knowledge in educating the young children in your life!

This workshop provides you with hands-on experience at the Urban Ecology Center’s Riverside Branch. Participants will have a distinctive opportunity to see up close how UEC educators connect children in cities to nature and each other. The session will be led by Matt Flower, a registered trainer, Environmental Educator, and UEC Early Childhood Specialist.
