TRAINING: Recycling and Solid Waste Curriculum from the Pisgah Forest Institute

Plan ahead to attend this training this summer.

July 28-30, 2010: Recycling and Composting in the Classroom

This workshop, designed for K-12 educators, will focus on recycling and composting, and their importance in solid waste management and sustainability. In learning about these topics, participants will also be learning how and why to teach about recycling and composting. Woven throughout the workshop will be material from both Wake County’s “Feed the Bin” and Project Learning Tree’s “Municipal Solid Waste” curriculum guides. In addition to this curriculum, we will focus on how to implement and effectively run a recycling and composting program in a school setting.

Workshop participants are eligible to receive up to 1.5 Continuing Education Unit credits based on 15 contact hours, as well as Criteria III credit in the N.C. Environmental Education Certification Program – through the N.C. Office of Environmental Education.
