 Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood Educators: Growing Up
 Wild and Project Learning Tree 
 
 Growing Up WILD and Project Learning Tree's Environmental Experiences
 for Early Childhood build on children's sense of wonder about nature
 and invite them to explore the natural world around them. Through a
 wide range of activities and experiences, these new curriculums
 provide an early foundation for developing positive impressions about
 the natural world and lifelong social and academic skills. Educators
 taking this professional development workshop will receive both
 multi-award winning curriculum guides for educators of young
 children.  The activity guides feature over 150 experiences that
 engage children in outdoor play and exploration. Join instructors,
 Patti Steinman, Education Coordinator, Connecticut River Valley
 Sanctuaries and Kim Noyes, Northfield Mountains Education
 Coordinator, for a fun-filled day of interactive, hands-on,
 activities.  Gain experience and skills helpful for taking children
 outside to explore the natural world. This professional development
 workshop is great for teachers, camp counselors, child care
 providers, home school parents and other educators. Both curriculums
 are correlated to the National Association for the Education of Young
 Children (NAEYC) Standards and the Head Start Child Outcomes
 Framework.
