Celebrating the Colorado Plateau: Water Within a Landscape
The BOEP welcomes your submission for their annual spring conference in the heart of the Colorado Plateau. The Colorado Plateau Bioregional Outdoor Education Conference is part of the Four Corners School of Outdoor Education's Bioregional Outdoor Education Project. BOEP was started in 1999 to allow students and teachers to study their roles in the natural and cultural heritage of the Colorado Plateau. This conference is held annually to bring together K-8 teachers and other educators to learn how to better incorporate bioregionally focused, place-based, hands-on, outdoor education into their classrooms.
Conference sessions should reflect place-based, bioregional, and/or outdoor education philosophy, pertaining specifically to the Colorado Plateau. Presenters will have 90 minute sessions on Saturday or Sunday morning. Last year’s conference drew 50, K-8 educators from the Colorado Plateau and we are expecting about the same this year.
To submit a proposal go to the Four Corners School website to download the forms. Proposals are due by Dec 15, 2011.
Presenters have their registration fee waived but do need to register for the conference and make lodging arrangements. Registration will begin in February 2012.
