ENTICE Workshops for Educators - Professional Development and More
SPRINGFIELD, IL -- Native bees, pollinators, wild mammals and urban wildlife are just some of the topics being offered this fall through the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR). These professional development workshops for educators provide background information, networking opportunities, hands-on lessons, supplemental resources on the topic and the opportunity to work with resources professionals.
