The Carbon County Environmental Education Center will host a Growing Up WILD Educator Workshop on Feb. 6.

There is a fee. The snow date is Feb. 7.

Growing Up WILD is an early childhood education program that builds on children's sense of wonder about nature and invites them to explore wildlife and the world around them. Through a wide range of activities and experiences, Growing Up WILD provides an early foundation for developing positive impressions about the natural world and lifelong social and academic skills.

This workshop incorporates nature into classrooms and child care settings. This is especially appropriate for preschool through second grade teachers, day care providers, Head Start teachers, and parents who home school.

Through music, crafts, language, and movement, the Growing Up WILD early childhood education program is designated to use with children ages 3-7. This workshop includes a 128 page, Growing Up WILD Activity Guide, which includes step-by-step instructions, copy me pages, healthy snack ideas, connections to art, math, science, and the national early childhood standards, and many more resources.

Participants will build upon young children's inborn love of wildlife as they explore the outdoors. The workshop leaders have a combined total 30 years of teaching experience and have presented numerous workshops.
