Get Outta the ‘Hood and Into the Woods!
Teachers’ Night Out Makes Nurturing Nature A Reality for Students
Newport Beach, Calif., November 28, 2017 - The word going around is that Thanksgiving has turned into Thanks-taking, especially with the biggest shopping frenzy day starting before the turkey even has time to digest. So ENC has decided to give back by showing teachers, homeschoolers, naturalists, scout leaders and any adult who cares about this planet some fun and scientific ways to encourage children’s inherent fascination with the awesomeness of nature.
So come on out for another warm and friendly Teachers’ Night Out get-together at the Environmental Nature Center, 1601 E. 16th St., Newport Beach, and bring the goodness of giving back to nature into your homeschool and classroom. Nurture your students’ natural curiosity of all things nature and instill the giving spirit just in time for the holidays.
From 4 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 13, at the Environmental Nature Center, 1601 E. 16th Street, Newport Beach, we’ll have our own after-hours walking tour of the Nature Center to discover fun and exciting things your students can do to give back. We’ll give you some good ideas and show you how to bring them to life as service-learning science projects that will make the holidays even more meaningful.
Afterwards, we’ll enjoy a light meal together, share our experience over a glass of wine and break out some s’mores ‘round the campfire!
It all adds up to a night of nurturing from nature that we can pay forward! And it’s only $10 apiece!
