“Last summer, Wild Seed Project piloted a two-day teacher training program designed to support Maine educators with integrating place-based, native plant ecology in their classrooms. Our educators and 22 teachers across the state gathered to learn and strategize together about the future of Maine’s native plant education thanks to the generous support of individuals and foundations across the state.”

“This August, join Wild Seed Project for a two-day professional development intensive for educators, focusing on decolonizing the language of environmental education, building safety and belonging in the natural world, and fostering relationships with Maine’s flora and fauna. Educators will come away with expanded language for describing place-based relationships, ideas and resources for building outdoor education spaces at their schools, and new curriculum to try! This training also provides resources for integrating Wabanaki studies into environmental education in support of state requirement LD 291.”

“This program is developed and facilitated in partnership with Nell Houde (Wild Seed Project); Kathy Pollard and Ann Pollard-Ranco (Penobscot citizen) of Know yOUR Land Consulting; and educators from MOFGA (Session 1) and The Ecology School (Session 2).”
