Summer Courses for Adults at SKMC

TMI will be offering three Professional Development Workshops for teachers and other interested citizens this summer. Participants will learn about the mountains, forests, and streams that make up the Central Appalachian Highlands - one of the most biodiverse ecosystems in the United States. They will also leave with the skills and materials necessary to teach this information to their students.

The workshops include:
