Clem Miller Environmental Education Center, Point Reyes National Seashore
Learning on the Land, a prerequisite course designed for teachers, naturalists, environmental educators and program leaders interested in utilizing the Clem Miller Ed Center, welcomes all educators interested in connecting to the land. This two day course weaves together lessons in natural history, environmental & experiential education and program planning specific to this site.
The February workshop begins at 8 AM Saturday morning and ends Sunday at 4:30 PM. Food will be provided from Saturday mid-morning through Sunday lunch. The April workshop begins at 8 am Thursday morning and ends Friday at 4:30 PM. Food will be provided from Thursday mid-morning through Friday lunch.
Come prepared to get to know the kitchen and be part of our collective meal preparation, cooking and cleaning.
Participants are invited to come a day early for a day of intensive ecology exploration. While the main event combines training in practical planning and teaching methods, the optional day is packed with information and practice on topics such as bird language, tracking, botany and general ecology.
For those travelling from outside the area and anyone interested in spending a little extra time on site, add optional overnight accomodations before or after the workshop for just $30/ night more. (You're on your own for dinner those nights, as town is a short drive away. However, we will provide coffee/tea and goodies from Bovine Bakery in the morning. Check out by 10am on Monday for February Workshop and 10am Saturday for April Workshop.)
The fee is $160 for PRNSA members and $205 for nonmembers and includes instruction, lodging, and meals (April-Thursday mid-morning through Friday lunch & February-Saturday mid-morning through Sunday lunch). The fee for the Ecology Intensive course is $95 and includes instruction, lodging, and meals (mid-morning through dinner).
Continuing Education Credits are available through Sonoma State University for an additional fee.
