EarthFest Educators Night
On October 29, 2013, Arizona Forward, along with official education partner University of Phoenix, hosted more than 300 Arizona educators at the Ninth Annual EarthFest Educators Night at the Phoenix Zoo.
Now in its tenth year, this innovative program combines entertainment and education, showcasing environmentally oriented curriculum, activities and programs on Arizona’s unique desert character. Booths representing public and private sector environmental education programs, along with exhibits from the non-profit and educational communities are featured at the event. Other attractions for teachers include giveaways, complimentary refreshments and resources that help in the classroom. Educators can also apply for a grant to incorporate green projects into the classroom, thanks to funding provided by Helios Education Foundation.
In 2014, EarthFest Educators Night will be held on October 29. Please check back to learn more details about this exciting event as they develop.
