Fayetteville workshop to showcase state’s reptiles and amphibians

March 9, 2018 by  

North Carolina is home to a variety of amphibians and reptiles, and during a Fayetteville workshop, educators and others who work with children will learn how they can help them to discover more about these creatures.

The Project WILD event, which will run for six hours, will give those who participate a wealth of knowledge about the state’s reptiles and amphibians, and share tips about how they can impart this to their students. As some of the workshop will take place outdoors, those who plan on coming out are reminded to come dressed for the weather conditions and to bring a bagged lunch.

Educators who take part in the training will be eligible to receive CEU credit, and all may qualify for Criteria I credit through the NC OEE Environmental Education Certification program. Each person who completes the session will walk away with a guide that will include over 150 different activities they can share with kids. These have been designed to foster an interest in wildlife and natural resources. Items like this can be prepared by print shops in the area.

This Project WILD workshop will be held on April 2, and is set to start at 9:00 am. It is being hosted by Cape Fear Botanical Garden, which is located at 536 N Eastern Boulevard, and further details can be found on the Fayette Observer website.
