grandchildren return. 'Teaching and Learning With Monarch Butterflies' is a two-day workshop combining classroom and field experiences where participants are taught by a team of experienced educators that provide participants with the knowledge, skills, materials, and confidence to raise monarchs on their own. This workshop enables pre-K through 12th-grade educators to teach essential skills in literacy, math, science, geography, technology, Spanish, the arts and social studies… through the captivating story of monarchs (but isn’t limited to educators). Register here:

Rutgers U. Wetland Construction: Principles, Planning and Design

8:30am - 5:00pm (Check in time on Day 1: 8:00am)
This class serves as an introduction to the fundamentals of functional design and provides the means to rapidly assess the distribution of hydrology on your site and create useable hydrographs for the presentation of your wetland design. Building on the student's understanding of wetland functions, this course will also guide you through the many factors required to plan and design a functional wetland. Through classroom lessons and field training at a constructed wetland complex, learn "real world" applications with an emphasis on two key components that drive success: DDT (depth, duration & timing) of site hydrology and the landscape position. 
Featured Topics: Hydrogeomorphology: The importance of landscape position and where water is coming from; Water Budget Calculation: Water inputs/outputs and TR-55 runoff curve; The Thornthwaite Method: One method for calculating evapotranspiration, and Estimating Stream Flow and Producing Basic Hydrographs: Create useable hydrographs for the presentation of your wetland design. Fee: $995 Registration

Science on the Move at Duke Farms
9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
DuKinesthetic learning has been documented as a research-based methodology that benefits all students. When students move, they implement their brain-body connection which makes learning “stickier”. Additionally, the movement provides opportunities to effectively learn scientific processes and concepts in an engaging and active way. The full-day workshop will provide cross-curricular activities directly tied to The Next Generation Science Standards as well as the NJ Language Arts and Physical Education Standards. Teachers will be guided through lessons they can implement immediately and will also be coached on how to create their own cross-curricular lesson plans and assessments to be used in classrooms, open space or outside. The program will feature connections to our natural world and the relationship between overall health and outdoor activity. Register here

Collaborating with Nature to Write and Tell Stories at Duke Farms
Fri, Oct 26, 2018, 6:00 PM
Sun, Oct 28, 2018, 2:00 PM

In ancient Greece, Antaeus was a hero whose strength derived from the connection of his feet to the earth. He was only defeated when Hercules lifted him off the ground. Like Antaeus of old, people need to be grounded in a relationship with the earth. Led by experienced naturalists and storytellers from Monarch Teacher Network, this Stories from the Land weekend retreat explores the teaching and healing power of nature… when combined with story writing and storytelling. As creative teams, participants learn how to develop and share their own stories, inspired by materials and stories drawn from nature. Writing, communication, and performance skills are integrated into a unique approach that can inspire creativity and build community among people of all ages and backgrounds. Register here
