Washington County Workshops

Interested in incorporating agriculture, natural resources, and the environment into your classroom but not quite sure how? Let us help get you started with teacher training. Over the course of an evening together we will focus on things you would like to cover: lessons that work for your class, books set aside just for Washington County Educators, Kits full of hands-on activities you can use in the classroom, how our programs work, and other training for Washington County that are upcoming. Our Washington County Programs Coordinator would love to work with you to schedule a local workshop for Washington County teachers!

PDU Credits are available for any workshops offered!
