The following is the description of the course from the Hog Island website:

Learn practical approaches and add inspiration to your environmental education curriculum during this action-packed program. Our experienced and enthusiastic instructors share their favorite approaches, methods, and activities for engaging both children and adults with nature.

Workshops using techniques in art, music, theater, journaling, and other disciplines will be presented. Participate in a host of classic Audubon Camp field trips, including a boat trip around the restored Atlantic Puffin and Tern colony on Eastern Egg Rock, intertidal explorations, and hiking through Hog Island’s unspoiled spruce-fir forest. In a beautiful outdoor setting, these experiences provide a wonderful opportunity to learn new methods of teaching to bring home to your students. We’ll explore citizen science, create inquiry-based lessons on birds and other topics, and demonstrate low and high-tech methods of teaching.

Northern New York Audubon recognizes the importance of inspiring our youth and this opportunity helps us fulfill our goal of connecting them with the important role birds play in our communities. We are looking for a passionate educator that shares our goal.

If you have any questions please email nnya@nnya.org and someone will get back to you. You may also contact Hog Island directly if it is related to camp or the program.

We look forward to hearing from you.
