An environmental education (EE) committee of Refuge staff, the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership, Educational Service District 112, Columbia Gorge Refuge Stewards, and local retired teacher volunteers has developed an educational program geared toward fifth grade science curriculum. To supplement visits to the Refuge for environmental education, an Educator's Guide to the program will be available at this website soon. Additionally, the Refuge offers Educator Workshop to acquaint teachers with the Refuge's education program, activities, and facilities. Teachers attending the Educator Workshop will receive a free CD of the current Educator's Guide and get great tips for planning a successful field trip to the Refuge.
Educator Training Opportunities
The EE committee is pleased to be able to offer educational opportunities to teachers and volunteers. Learn from our excited and knowledgeable trainers information that can be shared with your students while on their field trip to connect them with the outdoors in an educational atmosphere.
Teachers who attend this workshop are eligible for assistance from volunteers who have also attended the workshop. They also are available for receiving educational clock hours.
We are planning our next workshop for late August.
For more information about the training or education program, including scheduling Educational Visits, please contact Jim Clapp at (360) 835-8767 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
