Situated just outside of Asheville, NC, Woodson Branch Nature School is an idyllic site for an Outdoor Teacher Retreat! Join us as we discover best practices and approaches to nature-based education, nestled in the mountains. Presenters share insights and activities based on their work in nature preschools, forest kindergartens, or other nature-based programs.
This training is ideal for educators, caregivers, and others working with children three to six years old. Attendees work in all kinds of settings, from nature-based schools and forest kindergartens to public schools, traditional preschools, HeadStart programs, childcare centers, daycare, homeschool, and more. Light breakfast and lunch are included, but bring your canteen for drinks.
ERAFANS will provide a professional development certificate at the conclusion of the event. Please dress for the weather, as at least 50% of this event will take place outdoors, and don't forget your canteen!
