Professional Development Workshops

Calvin College students majoring in Early Childhood, Elementary Education, Secondary Education, Biology, Geology/Geography, Recreation and/or International Studies with interests in science education, environmental education, outdoor recreation, and/or interpretation are invited to attend environmental education workshops at the Bunker Interpretive Center.

Two workshops are offered every academic year, one during the fall semester and one in the spring semester. Workshops introduce participants to national, award-winning, environmental curriculum such as Growing Up WILD, Project Learning Tree, and Project Wet. These curriculum guides are used by formal teachers and other educators working with students in pre-K through grade 12. The workshops will certify you to use the curriculum materials and guides in your future classrooms, recreation programs, environmental education programs, and vacation Bible school classes, etc. find out more
