9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Join staff from the Chicago Botanic Garden as they teach us about the interrelationships of organisms in Illinois woodlands and the special problems associated with woodland restorations. Targeted to educators of grades four through 10, this workshop will include discussions of species adaptations, relationships of woodland organisms to each other and the physical environment, invasive species and much more. We’ll take a tour to see how these topics relate to the Chicago Botanic Garden and will do some hands-on sampling. Supplemental educational materials and activities will be provided and demonstrated throughout the day. Continuing Professional Development Units are available. This workshop is part of the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
