Teacher Resources

PREPARING THE NEXT GENERATION OF CONSERVATION LEADERS

In partnership with the Library of Congress, The National Museum of Forest Service History has hosted Teacher Workshops to teach using Primary Source Documents from both the Museum collection and the Library of Congress’s collection. In 2017 and 2018 educators from across the United States came to Montana to learn. These teachers also serve as ambassadors post workshop and the lesson plans they create are shared at no cost to educators around the world.
