by Wild Seed Project

This August, join Wild Seed Project for a two-day professional development intensive for educators, focusing on decolonizing the language of environmental education, building safety and belonging in the natural world, and fostering relationships with Maine’s flora and fauna. Educators will come away with expanded language for describing place-based relationships, ideas and resources for building outdoor education spaces at their schools, and new curriculum to try! This training also provides resources for integrating Wabanaki studies into environmental education in support of state requirement LD 291.

This program is developed and facilitated in partnership with Nell Houde (Wild Seed Project); Kathy Pollard and Ann Pollard-Ranco (Penobscot citizen) of Know yOUR Land Consulting; and educators from MOFGA (Session 1) and The Ecology School (Session 2).
