NATURE IS CALLING! MINI-CONFERENCE
EENC Piedmont & Western Section Event Saturday, June 15, 2018, 9am-5pm Camp T.N. Spencer; Concord, NC
The Piedmont and Western sections of the Environmental Educators of North Carolina are uniting to host the 2018 Nature is Calling! Mini-Conference at the beautiful Camp T.N. Spencer Park in Concord, NC from 9 am – 5 pm on June 15th, 2018. This conference will be a summer kick-off, bringing together formal and non-formal educators who want to incorporate environmental education in engaging, innovative, and meaningful ways. Our theme, "Nature is Calling," invites participants to relax and unwind in our greatest classroom: the outdoors.
This full and inspiring day will offer a variety of workshops (full schedule will be posted on the event listing soon!) that will empower you to get your students outside - nature is calling them, too! The outdoors not only serves as a wall-less classroom, but as a vital tool to teach across the curriculum, making learning relevant and meaningful for thoughtful, young minds. Please join us and walk away with a toolbox full of best practices to encourage curiosity and inquiry in your own programs.
Come early to enjoy a light breakfast during our networking hour from 8 am to 9 am. A cookout lunch will also be provided as part of the event. Following the conference, you are invited to socialize with us at Cabarrus Brewing Company over free beer and food truck snacks.
We are keeping the costs very low to minimize any barriers of your attendance. Registration fee is $15 for EENC Members and $20 for non-members. Formal educators (i.e. classroom teachers) with school ID will receive a full refund upon attendance at the conference.
We have limited space for this event, so please register as soon as you can. Registration will close on May 30th at the latest, or as soon as conference fills.
Please spread the word to all those that might benefit from this rich educational and networking experience!
