Canceled: Growing Up WILD Facilitator Training

Due to COVID-19 complications, this facilitator training is now canceled. It will not be re-scheduled. All registrants will be contacted.

If you are interested in becoming a Growing Up WILD Facilitator, please contact Carissa Longo, Project WILD/GUW State Coordinator at calongo@pa.gov .

Growing Up WILD (GUW) is a national, award-winning, standards-based early childhood (ages 3-7) education program that builds on children’s sense of wonder about nature and invites them to explore wildlife and the world around them. All potential facilitators who attend the entire training session will receive their own full-color GUW Activity Guide which includes 27 field-tested activities that include art, reading, music, math, snacks, and outdoor learning.

This workshop will train participants to become GUW Workshop facilitators. Facilitators are able to offer
GUW Educator workshops on their own. Facilitators must commit to providing at least one GUW workshop every 5 years to maintain active facilitator status. This workshop
will be interactive, occur both indoors and outdoors, and participants will be asked to co-lead a GUW activity for the group (all materials provided). More details will
be sent prior to the training.

This training is open to both DCNR-PA State Parks Education staff, other Commonwealth of PA agency Education staff, and non-Commonwealth of PA Educators (formal & non-formal).

Free! Lodging not provided. Act 48 hours will be provided to certified teachers. Space is limited; register early. Each participant is responsible for their own overnight lodging and travel expenses. Beverages & breaks provided. More details will be sent prior to the training.
