    In the midst of this unprecedented time, people are in need of daily practices to cope and to maintain their well-being. What would it look like if we used our interest in birds to reduce stress and anxiety and return to our senses in an effort to practice wellness? Join Bird Diva, Bridget Butler, for a presentation and discussion exploring how birding can boost our well-being and stave off stress and anxiety.

    This program will integrate digital photography into nature exploration and discovery, through a collaboration between In-Sight Photography and BEEC. We will use the camera as a lens to investigate the natural world around us. Explorations will take place at unique natural areas around Brattleboro, including woodland, aquatic and mountain adventures. No prior camera experience needed.

    9am – 3pm, for Ages 12- 15

    *Drop off and pick up location will vary by the day (potentially at BEEC on Monday and at In-Sight Photography on Tuesday through Friday).

    • World Fellowship Center - Albany, NH

    The 2023 VEEP/NHEEP Summer Institute encourages teachers to use play, wonder, and hope as catalysts for inspiring students to make change, and to find joy in taking action. We will model empowering, interdisciplinary, student-driven instructional practices to connect students to energy and climate topics and to help them find meaningful and authentic ways to be part of evidence-based solutions in their communities.

    Participants will:

    • Identify curricular pathways and work on standards-aligned unit plans that lead from joyful, hopeful and/or wondrous phenomena/engineering challenges to meaningful energy or climate action
    • Experience hands-on, minds-on lessons from the student perspective, and engage in play each day.
    • Access opportunities for further collaboration with VEEP/NHEEP for student workshops, PD, curriculum development, action projects, and more.
    • Become part of our cohort of teachers dedicated both to serving students and moving towards sustainability in our communities, economy and environment


    • Early Bird Pricing - $900 for the whole week if you sign up by 5/1/2023!
    • $1000 after 5/1/2023 (includes bunkhouse accommodations and all meals)
    • $140 additional cost if you'd like to be in a private room (first come, first served).
