Nature in the Classroom Teacher Professional Development

2022 Workshop 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 a half-day teacher professional development workshop to learn different ways to teach and reinforce nature and environmental science concepts in your classroom!

Complete sessions relating to pollination, teaching the water cycle, and more! All sessions will be completed in-person at Norfolk Botanical Garden. Check-in for the workshop will begin at 8:30AM, with the first session beginning at 9AM. 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!

NEW THIS YEAR: Registrants of the Nature in the Classroom workshop will receive 20% off an NBG outreach program and 20% off a guided field trip for February-April 2022!
