Postponed: Go Teach Hiking 101 Educator Workshop

Due to Covid19 Mitigation measures, this workshop has been postponed until the Spring. Future date TBD.


Fee: $15.00; pre-registration and pre-payment is required

Hiking is more than putting on a pair of boots and walking in the woods. It’s a lifelong recreational activity that can increase one’s stamina, endurance, and athleticism. It’s also the basis of numerous other recreations including backpacking, orienteering, and geo-caching.

Learn how to enable your students to discover Penn’s Woods through an interdisciplinary set of lessons created by the PA Bureau of State Parks. Lessons focus on health, fitness, and trip planning; map reading and identifying local trails; forest ecology as well as nature journaling. The lessons address several PA Physical Education & Health academic standards as well as standards for Geography, Science & Ecology, and the Humanities.

The course is designed for teachers and outdoor educators and 6.5 Act 48 hours will be available for participants. Please bring your PPID number. 


Please note that we will be following the latest CDC social distancing guidelines at this workshop. Masks will be required for times in which social distancing cannot be observed, so please be sure to have one available.

Additionally, lunch will not be provided, so please bring a bagged lunch for the day.

Registration and payment required by September 11, 2020. To register, please click the "buy tickets" link in the upper right corner to reserve your spot and follow the payment directions in the registration email.
