Potomac Valley Audubon Society is sponsoring a Project Learning Tree: Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood workshop on March 7, 2015, in Martinsburg.  

The class will be held at Hospice of the Panhandle’s Education Room (330 Hospice Lane, Kearneysville WV. Across the road from Food Lion on old Route 9, near Short Road).  

The instructor is Linda Carnell of the US Forest Service.  Each person attending the workshop receives a copy of the book and accompanying CD.  

Developed with preschool educators and early childhood specialists, Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood includes over 130 experiences that engage children in outdoor play and exploration and is specifically designed for educators who work with children ages three to six. Topics include exploring nature with five senses, meeting neighborhood trees, and experiencing trees through the seasons.  An accompanying music CD features songs from children's musician Billy B. Brennan that encourages children to sing, dance, and move.

This particular workshop has not been offered in the Eastern Panhandle before.  Early Childhood Educators are particularly invited to attend, but the workshop is open to all interested adults.

Registration is required. The workshop will take place inside, however if time permits, you may head outside for a bit. Please dress accordingly for the weather.

Please contact Ellen Murphy at or 304-676-8739 with any questions you may have

*$10 fee is non-refundable
