The Teachers Night Out series brings all kinds of educators together for fun afternoons of learning exciting hands-on ways to teach children about science and nature. Everyone is invited! Classroom teachers, outdoor educators, scout leaders, homeschool parents – anyone who wants to be a better educator.
Ways to attend:
- In person! The ENC will adhere to health and safety standards based on the most up-to-date and scientific information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the OC Health Care Agency. A mask and physical distancing will be required. Teachers from Title I schools may attend for free! ENC members receive a 10% discount.
- Via Zoom! Can’t make it in person? We’ll send you a link to attend virtually.
Join us as we walk through the Center, after hours, to learn some ways you can help increase Equity & Inclusion in Nature. An ongoing relationship with nature benefits all aspects of child development – physical, cognitive, social and emotional – but these benefits aren’t fairly distributed. Marginalized groups frequently lack access to nature while also bearing the burden of environmental problems. We all share the same unlimited potential, but barriers prevent many from realizing theirs. Nature is for everyone. But not everyone feels like nature is inviting, accessible, inclusive, and safe. What can we do to ensure nature is truly for ALL? How can we embed new rhetoric into environmental education that reinforces these ideals? Join us for an enlightening discussion that will leave us all feeling inspired. Learn ways the ENC is making a renewed effort to increase student diversity to assure equitable access to nature and environmental education for underserved youth in our community, because nature and environmental education should be accessible to everyone.
Afterwards we’ll enjoy a light meal together and share some wine by the campfire.
