A workshop for educators wishing to deepen their students’ awareness of the natural world will be held at Mosquito Hill Nature Center on Saturday, March 2 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This workshop is perfect for K-12 educators, natural resource professionals, 4-H and Scout leaders, and anyone interested in learning more about fostering a relationship between children and the natural world.
