The Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an innovative, interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education curriculum based on the essays in A Sand County Almanac. For twenty years LEP has provided schools, nature centers, and conservation organizations with this excellent hands-on and reflective curriculum for working directly with students. Join co-hosts Maryland Agricultural Education Foundation and Fox Have Farm and Learning Center for a first-ever facilitators training so that you can train the educators in your region, agency, or school system to deliver the LEP program!
Facilitator Trainers participate in a twenty hour course that helps educators in formal and non-formal settings adapt lessons to suit not only particular student groups and venues, but also various teaching and learning philosophies that match closely with your agency or school system’s requirements and mission. Trainers receive practice in using the curriculum with adult educators. Sessions for record-keeping, administration, materials ordering, and marketing the program are included. The sixteen hour training event takes place over two days to include an evening session.
Fox Haven has been engaging in conservation for over 25 years and is located in the beautiful Middletown Valley just 15 minutes west of Frederick, Maryland, one hour north of Washington D.C., 1.5 hours west of Baltimore, and 1.75 hours east of Cumberland.
