Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge offers Environmental Education Workshops to help orient educators to the refuge, to familiarize you with the outdoor classroom sites, trails, and interpretive facilities, and to introduce you to sample activities which can be utilized with your students. It is highly recommended that you attend a session so that you will be better prepared to assist your students in outdoor classroom activities.

When you attend the workshop, you will be provided with a folder or binder of materials designed to introduce you to the educational programs and equipment resources. These workshops have been organized in coordination with the City of Virginia Beach Public School system so that teachers will receive certification points.

If you have questions about a workshop, please contact Visitor Services Specialist, Erica Ryder, by calling (757) 301‐7329 ext.3106 or emailing Erica_Ryder@fws.gov. Registration is required!
