Teachers can obtain material for each of the four lesson plans, as well as other information necessary to prepare the class before the visit to the refuge from the Bombay Hook website and click on For Educators or by contacting Tina Watson, Outdoor Recreational Planner at 302-653-6872. It is expected that there will be classroom preparation before the visit as well as follow-up after visit so that this can be a successful learning experience.
One day training programs for teachers, scout leaders, and volunteers are held periodically to prepare those in charge of visiting classes or groups. Contact Tina Watson, Outdoor Recreational Planner at 302-653-6872 for information about the training programs.
