UWSP students create online nature program videos
Learning about caring for injured wildlife, beneficial local plants or navigating the outdoors is now as easy as watching an online video, thanks to environmental education and interpretation students at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point’s Schmeeckle Reserve and Central Wisconsin Environmental Station.

As part of their education each semester, students in practicum classes at both university field stations create and lead in-person public nature programs. When nearly all of these were canceled this spring because of COVID-19, the students adapted by creating videos of their presentations, either at home or on location. The result is 23 family nature videos, five preschool videos and two summer camp activity videos, all available for free online...

...Find student videos and information on offerings on both field stations at www.uwsp.edu/cnr-ap/schmeeckle and www.uwsp.edu/cnr-ap/cwes (at CWES, see virtual links under “School Programs” and “Summer Camp.”)

Ken Notes: Please share this with families with students that could benefit from this. What a great opportunity to continue education over the summer months.
