Our workshops are open to formal and non-formal educators, and anyone who is interested in best practices in environmental education! Our themed workshops are enjoyable for anyone interested in the topic area.
Each curriculum program features many easy-to-use, hands-on, multidisciplinary activities that are designed to compliment existing curricula rather than displace or add additional concepts. The activities can be used in both classroom and informal settings and can easily be adapted to meet the learning requirements for academic disciplines ranging from science and environmental education to social studies, math, and language arts. Educators may choose one or more activities to teach a concept or skill, integrate them into existing courses of study, or an entire set of activities may serve effectively as the basis for a specific course.
All activities have been correlated to the Utah State Core Curriculum Standards, as well as national science, social studies, and environmental education standards.

Exceptions for refunds are allowable for workshops canceled by USEE.
