    Join us for our 8th year experiencing the natural history of Ohio at Camp Oty’Okwa. The 700-acre camp is under conservation easement and includes a dedicated state nature preserve, beautiful woodlands, hiking trails, and wonderful rock outcrops. Participants will be encouraged to broaden their knowledge and learn techniques that will help them improve their skills as an educator.

    The delicate balance of people, natural resource use, and technological advances is at the heart of many local, national, and global news stories. Throughout the week, participants will explore hands-on best practice strategies for introducing people to the natural world and these issues. Using their professional expertise and experience, top naturalists and educators from around the state will facilitate sessions using the camp and local resources. Sessions will provide opportunities to gain an understanding of topics related to state standards by immersing the participants in a natural setting and a stimulating learning environment.

    Crane Hollow Preserve is pleased to announce that it is offering Educator's Week scholarships to formal and non-formal educators in Ohio. The scholarships will assist educators who are interested in participating in Educator's Week held at Camp Oty'Okwa from June 5-11, 2016.
