Fostering Outdoor Observation Skills

  • January 21, 2017
    7:00 am - 1:00 pm

Observation is a fundamental skill for youth to be able to do science. In this workshop, AZ Game and Fish will provide tips and tricks to help connect youth with nature while engaging their senses. Participants will learn how to build youth’s observation skills to improve problem solving and scientific understanding. Activities and resources have been developed by both the Arizona Game and Fish Department and the Association for Fish and Wildlife Agencies.

The workshop will take place on Saturday, January 21, 2016 at the Mesquite Wildlife Oasis near Arlington, AZ and the Palo Verde Power Plant. The workshop will begin at 9am and will last until 3pm.

Participation is free.

Space is limited and registration is required. Registration does not guarantee participation. Spots will be filled on a “first to register” basis after payment has been received. If all spots are filled, additional registrations will be added to a waiting list. All accepted participants will receive additional details as we get closer to the program.

Participants will receive a certificate for 5.5 hours of continuing education as well as access to a variety of resources.

Participants will be responsible for their own lunch.

Complete the form register.

A great follow-up to this workshop is the “Fostering Outdoor Inquiry Skills” that we are hosting in February.
