Science, Stewardship, and Storytelling
July 22 – July 26, 2019 Conserve School, Land ‘O Lakes, Wisconsin
Green Schools National Network and Conserve School invite you and your students to a week of service and learning in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Throughout the week, participants will explore our relationship with the land and how it has evolved over time. We will investigate Science, Stewardship and Storytelling through Ecological Knowledge, Indigenous Knowledge, Climate Change and invasive species removal. Finally, no summer escape to Conserve School would be complete without a chance to connect with the campus’ 1,200 acres of lakes, woods, and meadows through swimming, canoeing, forest bathing, hammocking, or just relaxing on the beach with a good book. The week is designed so that educators may come by themselves or bring a group of students. There will be a mix of full group activities and opportunities for students and adults to go their separate ways. Outcomes for teachers and students will be a curriculum plan for translating what they learn in the Northwoods to their home communities.
