D.C. Teachers Night

Hosted by the U.S. Botanic Garden and D.C. Environmental Education Consortium

The U.S. Botanic Garden hosts D.C. Teachers Night each year in the Conservatory. Meet D.C.-area environmental educators to find out how to get your students learning about the outdoors and how to bring the environment into the classroom.

The evening features dozens of exhibitors with hands-on activities, lesson plans and resources to bring back to your classroom. Learn about student and teacher field experiences, professional development opportunities and more.

Please check our calendar of events to find out about the next D.C. Teachers Night or contact Lee Coykendall for more information.
