UW Whitewater Early Childhood Conference 2013
UW Whitewater, Whitewater WI
Friday, April 5th 2013
On Friday, April 5th 2013, MAHS was invited to participate in UW Whitewater’s early childhood conference. Hosted by the Wisconsin Nature Action Collaborative for Children as part of the UW-Whitewater Early Childhood Conference, this conference aims to connect adults (teachers) to nature, so they might do so for the children they work with. The event firmly believes young children need many opportunities to explore and fall in love with the natural world, so they develop a sense of protectiveness and stewardship for it as adults. We even received an honorary custom wood carving of Mr. Snake, our own fox snake used for educational events and outreach!
