This two-day symposium will bring educators and their partners together to experience and learn about nature-based learning through engagement with the environment, relationship-building, discussion, and workshops.

Participants will leave with a better understanding of the benefits of nature-based learning, practical tools for implementing nature based learning, and connections to a network of practice.
We invite you to join us for one or both days, whatever works best for you.
