Teacher Trainings

Nature-based trainings and schoolyard consultations are available on our site or yours. Cincinnati Nature Center offers scheduled trainings throughout the year, as well as shortened sessions for school or district in-services.

Events are offered throughout the year by Cincinnati Nature Center to provide public and private school teachers positive social, personal and educational experiences in nature. Some events will include teachers and their families, while others are for teachers only. Dates and times will vary based on topic.

COMING Summer 2019:

Birds on the Brain Overnight Teacher Training

Preregistration required.  This program is an overnight and will run from Wednesday, June 19 at 9 am to Thursday, June 20 at 3 pm.

Program participants meet at Krippendorf Lodge at our Rowe Woods location (4949 Tealtown Rd., Milford, OH 45150). 

This bird-focused educator workshop for public and private school teachers of grades K-6 will utilize resources from Cornell Lab of Ornithology, as well as other bird-loving organizations. 

Birds are readily observable wildlife for most schools, and teaching students to notice and appreciate their beauty and complexity can improve their interest in learning. Through the use of sensory activities, games, art, and direct observation, we will focus on how birds can be used to study a variety of topics in your schoolyard. We’ll engage in discussion, explore citizen science opportunities for students, and brainstorm methods for successful implementation in your schoolyard. We’ll also touch on how schoolyards can provide habitat to support birds and other parts of their food web.

Graduate credit through Ashland University available. Teachers will sleep in rustic cabins on Cincinnati Nature Center’s property. Contact Melissa Sabo with questions at

Cost: $65/teacher -OR- $60/teacher if registering with another teacher from your school (Discount will appear if it is the same transaction)

Please note that tickets will not display proper time frame of program.  This program runs from Wednesday, June 19 at 9 am to Thursday, June 20 at 3
