Owl Brook Teacher Workshop held on May 9

HOLDERNESS — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be holding a four-hour workshop for educators and care providers of young children at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness on May 9. The workshop is titled Growing Up WILD, sponsored by the N.H. Fish and Game, and Project Learning Tree's Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood.

The supplementary education program for young learners is designed to connect children ages three to seven with nature and the outdoors. The program supports educators and care providers by engaging young children in activities that encourage exploration of the natural world. Written by educators and wildlife professionals, and reviewed by experts in early childhood education, the activity guides provide an early foundation for developing active, healthy children who enjoy nature and are prepared to enter school with necessary learning skills.
