September 30 @ 9:00 am - October 1 @ 3:00 pm
Sept. 30-Oct. 1, 2022 (rain or shine)
9 a.m.-3 p.m.
Starting on Sept. 30, the New Jersey School of Conservation, will host “Voices from the Land: Exploring Landscape and Language, Art and Culture.” This two-day, hands-on workshop is an exploration of the oral and written language of science, art and performance. The target audience is elementary, middle school and high school teachers, art teachers at all levels, and environmental educators.
Participants will be prepared to implement the program in their classroom or other educational setting with preschool- through secondary-level students of all abilities. Educators have implemented Voices in the Land programs in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Turkey, Spain, Italy, Poland, Latvia, Romania and New Zealand.
Registration is $99 for both days. A box lunch will be provided each day, and each participant will receive a Voices from the Land guide containing examples and instructional materials. Purchase orders from school districts are accepted.
Participants who need lodging can find options in nearby Newton or may be able to reserve a nearby campsite or lean-to in Stokes Stoke Forest (these book quickly for weekend nights, so act fast).
Retired New Jersey educators and originators of Voices from the Land, Erik and Kris Mollenhauer have conducted Voices projects across the U.S. and several countries. In 2018, Voices was recognized by the Virginia Master Naturalists as “Project of the Year” for its effectiveness.
Interested participants can register at Voices from the Land: Integrating Language, Landscape, Art and Culture – Friends of The New Jersey School of Conservation. Registration runs through Sept. 10, 2022.
