Engaging Communities in Forest Education (K-12) – Forks, WA

Attention Formal K-12 Educators in WEST Clallam and WEST Jefferson counties!**

Join Pacific Education Institute (PEI) and our Sustainable Forestry Initiative partners for a two-day* educator workshop focused on forest education. As part of this in-person** professional learning experience, participants will explore key elements related to forest ecology and management.

Participants will experience working forests firsthand, learning from industry professionals and forging new community partnerships to help nurture inclusive and locally relevant instructional practices. Collaboration and planning time with grade band colleagues will be an integral part of this experience to directly support the design of meaningful field-based education for K-12 students.

Participants who attend both days will receive:

  • 12 Washington state approved STEM clock hours
  • Grade K-8 educators: Project Learning Tree’s Explore Your Environment: K-8 Activity Guide
  • Grade 9-12 educators: Project Learning Tree secondary resources

*We are planning to offer this two-day workshop during the summer. Be sure to sign up using a summer email address so we can communicate details as we get closer to the workshop.

**Registration for this workshop is only open to Formal K-12 Educators in WEST Clallam and WEST Jefferson counties. Educators who register from other school districts may have their registration cancelled. The workshop will take place in Forks, WA.

WEST Clallam and WEST Jefferson Educators – Register Here!
