Did you know that more than half of Kentucky's endangered species are freshwater mussels? Do you know how many land turtles are found in Kentucky? Do you know which animal is Kentucky's fastest? (Hint: It's a bird.) Do you know why warm season grasses make good wildlife cover? This workshop is designed for educators who want to learn more about Kentucky's native plants and animals, their adaptations, their ecological roles, their habitats and our native ecosystems. While teaching global ecosystems is important, teaching kids what's in their own "backyard" is often left by the wayside. Come let us remind you of common names for Kentucky's plants and animals, where they live, and why they are important. Participants will take home a notebook of materials and a certificate from KAEE showing they have completed 3 hours of EE professional development.
Adults. Registration and pre-payment required. Fee: $15. Contact Kristy Stroud, 502-564-7863 ext. 4498.
