Extending Citizen Science Month in the Classroom

Welcome to a hands-on learning experience you can translate to your own classroom! Immerse yourself in nature in this ZooTeach session worth CEU credit. Participants will learn the basics of citizen science data collection and field techniques, meet Zoo ambassador animals, and bring home curricula to use directly in the classroom.
