EKISC works with both formal and non-formal educators, to deliver valuable invasive species education to our community. EKISC supports educators to integrate invasive species education into their current teaching practices to enhance and diversify their student’s learning both in, and outside of, their classrooms.

 

We also deliver educational programs and workshops of our own. Check out our events page for workshops related to invasive species, or if you have a group that would like to arrange a workshop, contact jessie@ekisc.com

Pro-D Day Teacher Training. Find out what invasive species are threatening your local biodiversity, what you can do to help, and learn how to link invasive species to your classroom. Learn about invasive species and take home hands-on activities. 

Involve your class in a  a weed pull or restoration event with your class, all while tying in the themes of invasive species and biodiversity!

EKISC can help you find a site for your event, provide you with work gloves and some tools, and a member of our staff to help teach. 

Talk to us about how we can help integrate invasive species into your program!
