Northwest Natural History Courses
 (K-12 Educators get 5 credits or 50 clock hours)

Natural History with Chris course slides

    These 5-day courses are designed to offer rich outdoor learning opportunities as participants explore some of the northwest's most spectacular places. While the courses are targeted at educators, all are welcome and encouraged to join the mix. 
   These courses offer opportunities to explore the natural history that formed many of the NW natural treasures, to develop your skills at interpreting the natural history of places in your own communities, and to improve your cycling, kayaking and hiking. Educators who come to these courses refine their abilities to design, facilitate, and manage high quality outdoor learning opportunities for students. 
   These courses also serve as a platform from which K-12 teachers across the curricular spectrum can increase the depth of students' learning by weaving nature-related concepts and themes into instruction.
