About this Nature-Based Training

Join us in the beautiful Appalachian mountains for a full day of nature-based teacher training at the historic Evergreen Heritage Center. Pending MSDE-approval, this training will awaken your senses, kindle curiosity, and spark more ideas for outdoor learning with young children. ERAFANS will provide a professional development certificate at the conclusion of the event. Please dress for the weather, as 100% of this training takes place outdoors, rain or shine. 

Note: We strive to make our training events zero waste, so please bring your canteen for drinks. Light breakfast and lunch are provided. 

Who Should Attend?

This training is ideal for educators, caregivers, and others working with young children. Our participants work in all kinds of settings, from nature-based schools and forest kindergartens to public schools, traditional preschools, HeadStart programs, childcare centers, daycare, and more.
