First Green to provide training workshops at Teacher Excellence Day

By |  September 23, 2014 0 Comments

First Green, an innovative program using golf courses as environmental learning labs, will be holding workshops at the Teacher Excellence Day 2014 on Oct. 3 at two different locations in Washington — Bishop Blanchet High School in Seattle and Bellarmine High School in Tacoma.

Sponsored by the Archdiocese of Seattle, the conference is a professional development program for teachers and administrators at Catholic schools. This will be the fourth year for First Green to participate. First Green will have a team in each location to both staff the booth in the vendor area and to provide 50-minute interactive workshops.

In the workshops, teachers will experience hands-on learning lab topics such as Math on the Golf Course, Soil Testing and Water Quality and Conservation – the same activities students will enjoy at their local golf course as part of a First Green field trip.

First Green was founded in the State of Washington in 1997. Other First Green field trip locations include Oregon, California, Utah, New Jersey and Western Canada.
