Oaks and the Animals that Need Them 2022

Date(s): 
7/16/2022 7/16/2022
Time(s): 
9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Description: 
Wander down the path to The Morton Arboretum and learn about the interdependence between oak trees and the native Illinois species that rely on them. Discover dynamic interactions that play a vital role in an ecosystem's overall health. Gather outdoor activities that focus on producers, consumers, decomposers and how species are adapted to survive in oak woodlands. Although targeted to teachers of grades prekindergarten through four, all educators are welcome to register for the workshop, but the information may need to be adapted, as appropriate. You'll take away several resources to use in your classroom! Professional Development Hours are available. This workshop is part of the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
