The Leopold Education Project

The education department at the Audubon Center at the Francis Beidler Forest will be hosting a workshop on April 27th for The Leopold Education Project. This is a spectacular time to see wildlife along the 1.75-mile boardwalk as it winds through the old-growth, cypress-tupelo swamp.

The Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an innovative, interdisciplinary, critical thinking, conservation and environmental education curriculum based on the classic writings of the renowned conservationist, Aldo Leopold. The Leopold Education Project teaches the public about humanity's ties to the natural environment in the effort to conserve and protect the earth's natural resources. It compliments existing EE curricula. Participants will receive the
Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold and an 87-page curriculum guide.

Workshop: April 27th, 9am-4pm

Target audience: Non-formal educators and teachers grades K – 12.

Registration fee: $25.00 per person for educator workshop

Deadline for registration April 15th 2009
