Science, Stewardship, and Storytelling: An Exploration of Place and Service-Learning
July 22 - July 26
Green Schools National Network and Conserve School invite you and your students to a week of service and learning
in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Throughout the week, participants will explore our relationship with the land and how
it has evolved over time. We will investigate Science, Stewardship and Storytelling through Ecological Knowledge,
Indigenous Knowledge, Climate Change and invasive species removal. Finally, no summer escape to Conserve School
would be complete without a chance to connect with the campus’ 1,200 acres of lakes, woods, and meadows through
swimming, canoeing, forest bathing, hammocking, or just relaxing on the beach with a good book. The week is designed
so that educators may come by themselves or bring a group of students. There will be a mix of full group activities and
opportunities for students and adults to go their separate ways. Outcomes for teachers and students will be a curriculum
plan for translating what they learn in the Northwoods to their home communities.
