Teacher Workshops

 

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden Workshops provide educators with the skills, knowledge, and experiences necessary to enhance curriculum through nature-based learning. While participating in activities throughout the Garden, educators learn effective outdoor teaching techniques and gain new ideas for hands-on connections to the Virginia Standards-of-Learning. Participants receive valuable classroom resources and a certificate for continuing education units (CEUs). onregistration
