Climate Clinics with Chicago Wilderness

cw climate clinic reviews

Climate clinics are full-day workshops that help non-formal and formal educators learn the science of climate change and strategies for teaching climate change in nature centers, schools, and communities.  The focus is on issues and resources in the Chicago Wilderness region (which includes northeastern Illinois, northwestern Indiana and southeastern Wisconsin).

Our next workshop:

Teaching Climate:  Understanding climate change science, impacts, and action. 

POSTPONED out of an abundance of caution related to COVID-19
Thursdays, March 12, 19 & 26, 2020
4:30 – 7:30 pm

Westcott Elementary School, 409 W 80th St., Chicago IL  60620

Due to COVID-19 and public health concerns, we are postponing the Climate Clinic series. It will likely be a full day workshop instead of a 3 week series.

Please know that we are disappointed, but felt we needed to do our part.   We appreciate your understanding. We will continue to pay close attention to the ongoing situation caused by the COVID-19 which has impacted many countries, people and communities across the world.

If you have any concerns or question please don’t hesitate to contact ask at animaliaproject dot org
