Badlands National Park Field Based PD
Go beyond hands-on to full immersion in this four day/three night field based PD in Badlands National Park. We spend one day in Wall (June 15) learning the protocols and then move to Sage Creek Campground which will be our base for field studies and exploring the park and its resources till Thursday noon.
This year's special theme will be using Google Earth tools. We will also use iNaturalist and GLOBE for our field work. All meals from Monday night to Thursday breakfast are provided. A limited amount of REI quality gear (sleeping bag, sleeping pad, tent) is available to rent.
The cost is $50 for South Dakota educators, $100 for out of state educators. 2 credits available for an extra fee. Registration opening Feb 18.
