Workshops for faculty, staff, student teachers and others who work with youth are available on astronomy, archaeology, earth sciences and leading wilderness trips for youth. Participants will explore nature, collect samples, take photos and learn practical ways to teach about nature in and outside the classroom. Optional college credit is offered.
