Connecting Classrooms to Communities at PKOLS/Mt. Doug Park **REGISTER for this workshop through the online track so that you can also select a morning workshop.**

In the workshop we will explore various way of connecting students to place and community.  Connecting our students to place fosters a sense of belonging and stewardship, benefiting both our learners and our communities in many ways. This place based approach will provide hands on opportunities which can be used with classes. 

This workshop will be held at PKOLS (this is the Indigenous name for Mt Doug). We will meet in the main parking lot on the ocean side.

Please note that this workshop is held outside (location in description).  Make sure to dress for the weather, bring your lunch/snacks and a mask.
