Lodging and Meals
Lodging will be in shared rooms, with bunk beds in all workshops except Workshop 3, which will have twin beds. Meals will also be provided on-site, mostly prepared in on-site kitchens, with dietary restrictions taken into account. Costs of lodging and meals are included in the workshop registration fee (a change from previous years).
Participants are welcome to make their own arrangements, such as staying in a hotel nearby and bringing their own food, but they will be responsible for the additional cost.
Students not already certified in the current Project WET, Project WILD, or Project Learning Tree guides will be required to order these books through KEEC. Each book costs $30 and contains EE lesson plans and activities that will be referenced throughout the course.
