About the EENC Webinar SeriesThanks to our amazing donors this spring, EENC is launching a fall webinar series to help environmental educators continue to build skills during the COVID pandemic. Throughout the series, we hope to cover a wide range of topics. Webinars may focus on lesson plans, curricula development, technology and virtual learning, naturalist skills/knowledge, educator self-care or environmental education operations such as communications, strategic planning for your program/department, risk management, or equity and inclusion.
Webinar registration is free and open to anyone to attend, but is limited to 100 participants.
Webinar will qualify for Criteria III and continuing education for NC DEQ EE Certificate.
A recording of the webinar will be sent to attendees afterward. It will also be posted on EENC's members-only page - so if you're an EENC member and not able to attend during the scheduled time, no need to register!
