Come join K-12 teachers and naturalists from the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy as we learn how our local environment can motivate inquiry skills in our classrooms. Teachers will be trained in teaching nature observation skills, sketching and note-taking in field journals, and “discovery readiness” skills such as blind contour drawing. Students’ field journals may be entered in Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy’s Peterson Young Naturalist Award competition at the end of the year and earn cash awards. Skills meet K-12 SOL standards in science, language arts, reading, writing, and arts education. Dress for weather as we spend half of the class outside on the Waterford Foundation’s Phillips Farm and bring boots as trails can be muddy.
