Unlike any other Professional Development conference you might attend, at the Manitoba Nature Summit the workshops are only a small part of the learning. We have arranged it this way because – like the children we work with, we believe that the best way to be an effective learner is to learn through play and wonder. When you leave the Nature Summit we don’t just want you to say you have learned- we want you to be invigorated, inspired and engaged so you can pass the wonder on to the children in your life.

Therefore, if you attend the full Summit, rather than just the day-time, you will receive 24 hours of Professional Development hours. This isn’t an exaggeration- you will be learning for at least 24 hours worth of your time and believe me- you’ll feel like it by the time the weekend is over! In fact you may want to book Monday off work too so you can recuperate…
