Flying WILD Professional Development Workshop

This fun-filled, interactive educator training is ideal for classroom teachers, environmental educators, school administrators, after-school program staff, youth group/service organization leaders, or anyone who loves birds and wants to teach others about them.

In addition to the training, workshop attendees will receive:

  • Their own copy of the 350+ page Flying WILD: An Educator’s Guide to Celebrating Birds.
  • A Flying WILD Certified Educator certificate of course completion.
  • Formal educators will also receive relicensure credits.
