Educator Workshops

One of  the programs that Friends of Reinstein Woods directly supports is workshops to help teachers incorporate the environment into their classroom. Trained educators share nationally recognized, standards-based curricula to help teachers better understand their own local environment. Teachers become comfortable using place-based education methods to make their students more college and career ready. These interdisciplinary programs are targeted at Pre-K through high school teachers. Workshops and schoolyard habitat consultations also can be done at an individual school upon request. For more information about educator workshops, contact Reinstein Woods at 716-683-5959.
