Habitats Workshop Feb. 9-10 in Bismarck

Release Date

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department and Missouri River Educational Cooperative are sponsoring a wildlife conservation and resource management workshop for teachers, environmental educators and anyone else who works with youth.

“Habitats of North Dakota” is scheduled Feb. 9-10 at the Game and Fish Department’s main office in Bismarck. The five North Dakota habitats – wetlands, badlands, prairie, woodlands and riparian – will be studied, with the North Dakota Studies Habitats curriculum used as textbooks.

The fast-paced workshop offers a hands-on approach educators can use in their classrooms and on field trips, and in discussing classroom and curriculum integration. All supplies are provided. Preregistration is required.  

Curriculum materials are suitable for both elementary and secondary teachers. Workshop instructor Sherry Niesar has a master’s degree in wildlife science and teaches many educator workshops in the region.

To register for the workshop, contact Carrie Ziegler, MREC, at 701-751-4041, or email carrie.ziegler@mrecnd.org. A $100 registration fee for materials, lunch and refreshments is required.
