Educator Professional Development

Are you looking for interactive ways to teach your students about wildlife and wild places?

Zoos are naturally educational! Our workshops will enhance your background knowledge
while providing ideas on integrating the Zoo into your classroom.


Ecology Workshop
Audience: Formal and Informal Educators, K-12
Date: June 22 – June 26, 2015
Registration Cost: $75

Join us for this exciting five-day workshop! We'll explore how various systems have evolved over time into dynamic living habitats. Through specific examples of conservation work that the Detroit Zoological Society is involved in, you'll have hands-on opportunities to learn about the complexity of ecosystems and how humans impact them. The course will be a combination of in-class work, field work, and a trip to a restored brownfield site. You won't want to miss out on this unique opportunity to work with staff from the Detroit Zoo!

Lunch will be provided each day and SCECHs will be available for an additional fee.  Class meets Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

If you have any questions, please email [email protected] or call 248-541-5717 ext. 3800.

Check back soon to learn about upcoming professional development opportunities for the 2015 – 2016 school year!
