FARMINGTON Leading the way in nature-based education in Maine, the University of Maine at Farmington is excited to announce its inaugural Nature-Based Education Summer Institute. This professional development opportunity is designed to introduce both educators-in-training and those with extensive experience in the field to the growing movement where children learn developmentally appropriate curriculum based on their sense of wonder about nature.

This full-day conference will be held from 7:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Saturday, June 25, beginning with registration in the North Dining Hall in UMF's Olsen Student Center. According to Patti Bailie, UMF assistant professor of early childhood education, the workshops will help educators connect to nature and connect nature to their classrooms.
