Informal and K-12 educators can participate in free professional development courses this summer.

One course will focus on plant phenology and climate change.  The course will provide information on how to participate in Project BudBurst (www.budburst.org), including suggestions for structuring your classroom involvement.  It will be offered in two sessions: 11 June to 9 July and 1 to 29 August.  The course will be offered in two sections, one for K-12 educators and one for informal educators at museums, botanic gardens, and nature preserves.
