Environmental Education in Challenging, Coronavirus Times
At ANROE, we’re all about teaching kids about Alaska’s natural resources. Especially getting them outdoors – which can be done while practicing social distancing at the same time. Right now students and educators (and some parents) may all be at home. We offer one-stop shopping for creative solutions! Linked here is a round-up of on-line resources, webinars, and virtual field trips for educators and parents to help create the best educational experiences ever during these challenging times. Enjoy!
