Go Teach Hiking 101 Educator Workshop
Fee: $15.00; pre-registration and pre-payment is required Hiking is more than putting on a pair of boots and walking in the woods. It’s a lifelong recreational activity that can increase one’s stamina, endurance, and athleticism. It’s also the basis of numerous other recreations including backpacking, orienteering, and geo-caching. Learn how to enable your students to discover Penn’s Woods through an interdisciplinary set of lessons created by the PA Bureau of State Parks. Lessons focus on health, fitness, and trip planning; map reading and identifying local trails; forest ecology as well as nature journaling. The lessons address several PA Physical Education & Health academic standards as well as standards for Geography, Science & Ecology, and the Humanities. The course is designed for teachers and outdoor educators and 6.5 Act 48 hours will be available for participants. Please bring your PPID number. Registration and payment required by September 11, 2020. To register, please click the "buy tickets" link in the upper right corner to reserve your spot. Then send a check made out to Pennsylvania State Parks to Nolde Forest (2910 New Holland Road Reading PA 19607)

    I will need accommodation in order to participate in this program. I recognize that if an ASL interpreter is needed, I will need to register 5 days or more in advance of the event so that the park can secure an interpreter for me.
    I will notify Nolde Forest Environmental Education Center if my plans change.
