EEAA Project Blitz was a huge hit with the teachers who came from all around the Southeast. It was held at Camp McDowell and the group got to spend time outside in Nature learning to share its magic with their students. In a brief two days and the evening between, we covered activities from four different “Projects”.
Helena Uber-Wamble, EEAA board member and Audubon staff member, was the instructor for Project Flying Wild. The teachers covered information about birds and learned several fun ways to get students engaged in learning about them.
Doyle Keasal, with Auburn University Extension, covered Project Wild, Project Wet and Project Learning Tree in a whirlwind of activities and exploration!
Keep your eyes peeled for more Project Blitz down the road! This is a great way to encourage teachers to bring hands on Environmental Education into their classrooms and outside in their schoolyards!
