Oaks and the Animals that Need Them
9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Learn about the interdependence between oak trees and the native Illinois species that rely on them. Discover dynamic interactions that play a vital role in ecosystem health. Learn outdoor activities that focus on producers, consumers and decomposers and how species are adapted to survive in oak woodlands. Although targeted to teachers of grades three through five, all educators are welcome to register for the workshop, but the information may need to be adapted, as appropriate. You will take away numerous resources to use. Professional Development Hours are available. This workshop is part of the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program from the IDNR.
