Are you an Indiana educator interested in learning more about Indiana’s forest resources and how to integrate them into your classroom? The Indiana Division of Forestry will conduct the Indiana Natural Resources Teacher Institute the week of June 22-26 at the Forestry Training Center at Morgan-Monroe State Forest. This multi-day conservation education program will include visits to public and private forests, tours of forest industry facilities and an introduction to forestry research in Indiana. The purpose is to provide an unbiased look into the impact sustainable forestry has on our state’s economy, environment, and quality of life, and to equip teachers to take that knowledge into the classroom.
This workshop will advance effective teaching and learning about Indiana’s forest resources and their management. Participants will learn how to approach the teaching of STEM concepts and principles from a natural resource perspective and develop a STEM-based curriculum project to be implemented with their students. Participants will receive more than 30 Professional Growth Points toward license renewal.
Application forms will be available Feb. 1. This program is for Indiana educators only. If you are interested please send an email to drogler@dnr.IN.gov.
