Big Backyard Volunteer Training (PM)

This is an introduction to the basic principles of environmental science and the philosophy and essential activities that make up this unique nature study program. Learn strategies for working with young children in the outdoor classroom and observe some of the exciting plants and animals that you may encounter during your Big Backyard explorations.  

Parents new to the program as well as veterans are encouraged to attend. Participants need only bring curiosity, an appreciation for the natural world and a desire to help children learn about life in their own backyard.
