Event Details

Register to attend an environmental education workshop for public and charter school educators using the Fl Dept. of Environmental Protection's Green Schools program. Registration is required to attend the workshop.

Investment in green schools is long term, producing multiple benefits such as: reduced operating costs, increased protection of natural resources, increased connections between the community and the school and a healthier, safer and more productive learning environment. By learning how each individual’s actions affect the environment, and by learning the steps that will benefit, restore and sustain our natural resources, our students will be ready to continue with the steps necessary for a sustainable future. This workshop will provide resources to help green your school and students. It can be used to enhance your STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) programming.

This workshop is open to all schools. There is no cost to register or attend this professional development training and this training will qualify for 6 in-service points.
