    This course is a natural history deep dive tailored to the unique needs of teachers interested in building a greater familiarity with the environment in which they teach. Participants will:

    • Build a framework for viewing the land and its inhabitants that relieves the discomfort of not knowing how to identify everything.
    • Become familiar with common birds and their song, basic tree and plant identification, wild edible safety, geology, and stream ecology.
    • Practice seasonal lessons and routines that deepen a partnership with the land and align with NGSS and Common Core.
    • Practice strategies for bridging the gap between learning that takes place outdoors and in the classroom.

    A casual morning of birding for all interests and experience levels facilitated by NBNC staff and guest leaders. These outings are about enjoying, learning about, and spending time with wild birds. No binoculars? No ID guide? No problem! The only requirement is an appreciation of birds (though we do have binoculars for those who would like them).

    Hosted by Bird Diva Bridget Butler, Slow Birding is a practice that builds a deeper observation of birds with the intention of knowing more about the whole bird in addition to identification. The Slow Birding approach is useful for beginner birders and experienced birders alike. Beginning birders find it a more relaxed approach to learning birds and experienced birders enjoy the feeling of letting go of the list and seeing birds with a fresh perspective. Bridget will share a variety of techniques that will help you look at birds, listen to them and interpret their behavior that will not only build your skills as a naturalist but will provide you with a practice that will allow you to slow down and reconnect with the natural world.

    Location: North Branch Nature Center
    Distance: This outing covers between 0.25 and .5 miles.
    Terrain and surface: The trails are 6’-wide grass paths over compacted dirt. The trails are flat with no cross-grade. One 20’ section of the trail has a 10% grade over a 100’ distance, and can be avoided. There are several benches along the route. Please let us know ahead of the program how we can better accommodate your accessibility needs.

    The Maine Environmental Education Association is cohosting an exciting event with the Southern Maine Conservation Collaborative!

    Relearning Place:

    Join us as we gather with Black, Indigenous, other people of color, and folks with white privilege from across the Northeast who are engaged with the land and place through the environment, education, conservation, agriculture, spirituality, medicine, and recreation.

    This convening is an opportunity to build relationships with others through the common grounding factor of place within our communities, the environment, the land, and the networks we live and work in. Through our convening, we hope to articulate a collective vision of the future for our communities and our worlds.

    We strive to foster a space that addresses the need for BIPOC folks to gather, share resources, and build relationships while also providing folks with white privilege the opportunity to reflect, learn, and contribute.

    You can expect to:

    • Build relationships
    • Share space
    • Create art
    • Be in community
    • Practice self-care

    We recognize that everyone’s perspective is necessary for creating a just and livable future. This is also an opportunity for white privileged folks to share learnings and identify problematic behaviors within their predominantly white organizations in ways that are often inaccessible to BIPOC folks.

    This is an in-person event with an expected size of 30-50 folks.

    Dates:  The event is May 31-June 2 held at Ferry Beach Center in Saco Maine.

    Cost:  Free for BIPOC folks with stipends to offset travel, suggested donation for white privilege folks.

    Application Due March 25

    This webinar will focus on trauma-informed education, which examines the ways trauma impacts how a student is able show up to learn or be present. Trauma-informed education takes bullying, poverty, racism, sexism, violence and other adversities into account when we are evaluating student behaviors and determining consequences. We will cover the principles of being trauma-informed, how to create nurturing relationships with students experiencing trauma, what consequences look like in this model, and more! There will be time for both listening and discussion with fellow educators.

    Facilitated by Rhiannon Kim, founder of Love at the Roots, LLC

    Rhiannon is in her third year of a Doctorate of Education (Ed.D.) in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at the University of Vermont focusing on healing-centered anti-oppressive trauma-responsive practices and pedagogies. She has also served as an adjunct lecturer at UVM and at Saint Michael’s College and worked as a trauma-informed equity consultant.

    This week-long investigation of Vermont biodiversity is designed for 7-12th grade teachers and educators looking to incorporate nature-based concepts and activities across their curricula. Each day is spent immersed in a different ecosystem, exploring the species, systems, and processes driving local ecology. We’ll practice field-based activities and classroom-based extensions aligned with Next Generation Science Standards and Proficiency-Based Learning frameworks.

    A typical day may include a “BioBlitz” of a local forest, an online biodiversity mapping session, a conversation with state ecologists about conservation and climate change, and picking blueberries during a soggy walk through a beautiful bog.

    By the end of the week, participants will be equipped with a range of resources, activities, and frameworks to understand and teach about Vermont biodiversity and its conservation. This course is about reconnecting with local ecology, re-imagining nature-based teaching and learning at the middle and high school level, and cultivating a community of educators passionate about exploring and understanding our wild world.
