LINCOLN – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is offering two free educator workshops in January focusing on birds.
These Project WILD workshops will offer educator training in the “Flying WILD: An Educator’s Guide to Celebrating Birds” curriculum and activity guide. Participants will learn about Nebraska’s bird species and how to use birds and bird watching to engage students in science, nature and being outdoors. Participants will receive a copy of the curriculum guide, as well as other bird-related resources to help implement bird education in their classroom or program.
The first workshop will be on Jan. 17, from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m., at Pioneers Park Nature Center in Lincoln. To register, e-mail your name and school or organization to firstname.lastname@example.org. The other will be on Jan. 24, from 9 a.m.-noon, at the Wildcat Hills Nature Center in Gering. To register, e-mail your name and school or organization to email@example.com.
