SKY ISLANDS BIODIVERSITY WORKSHOP FOR SCC EDUCATORS GRADES 4 – 12
February 20 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Why is the world class biodiversity that we have in Santa Cruz County so famous? What are the Sky Islands? How can we collectively inspire our students to learn about and help protect the local species that help support a healthy environment and thriving economy?
All SCC Educators Grades 4 – 12 are invited for an advanced workshop about the stunning biodiversity of the Sky Islands region. Via a combination of slide shows, nature walks and hands-on activities, educators will be given the tools, methods, and techniques required to form effective school-based Sky Islands Conservation programs and learn effective ways to impart critical environmental concepts to the students. It is imperative to educate future generations about the amazing wildlife and native plants that we are fortunate to have in the Madrean Archipelago – including our extraordinary natural heritage in Santa Cruz County!
