North Carolina Cooperative Extension Caswell County Center is partnering with Legacy Acres blueberry farm to deliver an educational blueberry pruning workshop. This workshop will cover all aspects of dormant pruning of blueberry bushes and other similar woody plants. The workshop will include a “hands-on” portion where participants will be taught how to prune an established dormant bush. For demonstration purposes, participants will be given pruning loppers (seen in the second image below) that they can take home and keep after the workshop. Registration for the workshop is free.

Join other K-8 classroom and nonformal educators as we explore activities in the Project Learning Tree K-8 Curriculum Guide. Every participant will leave the workshop with the PLT K-8 Activity Guide which includes 96 activities correlated to the NC Standard Course of Study and Essential Standards. The PLT activity guides are provided free of charge to participants through support from the NC Forestry Association. CEU renewal credits are available. This workshop qualifies for Criteria I in the EE Certification Program (K-8).

Differentiated instruction? Technology connections? Literature links? STEM? The PLT activity guide covers it all!!! The PreK-8 guide is correlated to the Common Core (math and ELA) as well as to the NC Essential Standards (science and social studies). Participants will learn about the materials through direct engagement in the PLT activities throughout the workshop. Please bring a bag lunch and prepare to be outside! More details, including parking, will be sent prior to the workshop.

Please make a personal commitment to attend to ensure there are enough materials and space for everyone. Parking directions will be sent prior to the workshop. Cancellations made by the registration deadline will receive a $10 refund. Cancellations after this date will not receive a refund.
