Event description


Learning on the Land: A Teacher Training 2017/2018

November 18-19 (Saturday - Sunday) / Ecology Intensive (November 17)
February 8-9 (Thursday - Friday) / Ecology Intensive (February 7)

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 Environmental Education Center, welcomes all educators interested in connecting to the land. This two-day course weaves together concepts of natural history, environmental and experiential education and program planning specific to this site.


The November workshop begins at 8 am Saturday morning and ends Sunday at 4:30 pm. Meals will be provided from Saturday morning through Sunday lunch. The February workshop begins at 8 am Thursday morning and ends Friday at 4:30 pm. Food will be provided from Thursday 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 a day early for a day-long intensive ecology exploration. While the main event combines training in practical planning and teaching methods, the optional day is packed with information on topics such as bird language, tracking, botany, general ecology and climate change.

Optional Overnight

For those travelling from outside the area and anyone interested in spending a little extra time on site, add optional overnight accommodations 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. We will provide coffee/tea and goodies from Bovine Bakery in the morning. Check out by 10am on Monday for November’s workshop and 10am Saturday for February’s workshop.)
