Imagining the vast prairies of Illinois’ past is difficult, but you can experience one of the best examples remaining in our state if you join us for this workshop at the Goose Lake Prairie State Natural Area near Morris. Designed for educators of grades kindergarten through eight, you’ll learn about prairie ecology as well as the history of the prairie in Illinois, and we'll take a discovery walk in the prairie. Illinois-specific educational resources will be provided. Continuing Professional Development Units are available. Sponsored by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, this workshop is part of the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program.
