Professional Development/ Citizen Science Training

Monarchs Across Georgia (MAG) offers professional development opportunities for nonformal and formal educators as well as outreach options.

Our Educator Workshops range from 5-10 hours in length and are facilitated by experienced environmental educators. Ten-hour workshops are accredited by the Georgia Department of Education with one Professional Leaning Unit (PLU). Fees usually range from $50-$100 per person, dependent on the cost of materials and supplies.

These workshops cover basic monarch biology and ecology, monarch citizen science projects (Journey North, Project Monarch Health, Monarch Larva Monitoring Project, and Monarch Watch tagging), and creating pollinator habitats.  The Monarchs and More: An Inquiry and Arthropod-Based Curriculum is basis for the monarch butterfly studies and schoolyard ecology explorations included in the workshop. Curricula are divided into grade-level specific lessons for K-2, 3-6, and Middle School teachers with a strong interdisciplinary approach incorporating concepts and skills in science, math, reading, writing, art and social studies. Lessons are congruent with K-8 concept and process standards as outlined in the National Academy of Science's National Science Education Standards (1996) and correlated to the Georgia Performance Standards.

Citizen Science Training are also available and range in length from 3-5 hours. Journey North, Project Monarch Health, Monarch Larva Monitoring Project, and Monarch Watch tagging demonstrations and field work are included. Fees usually range from $25-$50 per person, dependent on the cost of materials and supplies.
