Session Description:  
Join us to explore ways to get children and youth excited about conservation and the world around them. Too many children have limited contact or understanding of the natural world, which hinders their ability to connect with and care for the environment. Designed as a hands-on, participatory workshop, we will provide an array of activities to strengthen observational skills, teach specific environmental facts and concepts, and encourage biophilia! And don't worry about expensive supplies -- these activities need no or minimal, easy-to-find props.

special room needs: tables to seat all participants for hands-on activities
