The Morton Arboretum is dedicated to supporting the educators that are teaching the tree stewards of the future. In addition to providing the materials and resources, the Arboretum hosts teacher workshops that align with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), Early Childhood Learning and when applicable Common Core Reading/Writing Standards. Additionally, these workshops provide CPDH credit for participating individuals.
Teachers and educators, expand your knowledge and skills with workshops that foster a connection to nature and the environment for your students.
In addition to workshops and courses within our professional development framework of offerings, we also partner with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to offer ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) workshops throughout the year.
