Nature in the Classroom Teacher Professional Development

Thursday, October 5 | 4:30-8PM



2023 Testimonial

This workshop has inspired me to take all of these great ideas and concepts into the classrooms for this upcoming school year!


Join Norfolk Botanical Garden for an evening of refreshments, networking with area museums and professional educators, and break-out sessions to kick off the 2023-2024 school year! The full schedule for the workshop will be announced closer to the program date. Participants will earn three (3) professional development points to go towards their licensure renewal by attending the informational break-out sessions. All sessions will focus on ways in which to incorporate nature and environmental science themes and elements into different subjects and curricula. This workshop opportunity is part one of two, with the second workshop taking place in April 2024. 

NEW THIS YEAR: Registrants of the Nature in the Classroom workshop will receive 20% off an NBG outreach and/or a guided field trip for all October 2023-March 2024 programs!
