Teacher Tuesdays – Outdoor STEAM Education

June 4, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

Explore nature like never before at Forest Park Nature Center! On a short forest hike, our biologist will be your guide to the sounds and sights of the woodland and prairie habitats. You will see what makes the Peoria area so unique in terms of natural features, glimpse some cool native wildlife, and discover ways to incorporate an appreciation for nature into your classroom.

Inside the nature center, you’ll come face-to-face with a few fascinating native animals that love kids, make classroom visits, and display some impressive adaptations. Our staff will be on hand to answer your questions and discuss how to connect your students with the amazing natural world around them.

Enjoy an evening in nature discussing ways to bring nature into your classroom and how to get your students into nature.
