Every Symposium we try to add a few workshops to benefit attendees and local cave enthusiasts. This is one way the NCKMS is helping to promote the International Year of Caves and Karst. You do NOT have to be registered for the Symposium to register for a workshop, and workshop registration fees are separate from the Symposium registration fees. However, if you would like to stay for the Monday Evening Social, you will need to purchase a Day Pass at the very least. Please read the descriptions carefully for the times and locations of each workshop, requirements, and fees. And be sure to thank your instructors for donating the extra time to offer these exciting programs!
Project Underground is a K-12 environmental education curriculum and activity guide focused on caves and karst through the topics of geology, biology, and history. Learn methods to educate about the world beneath our feet in this workshop. Formal educators (classroom) and non-formal educators (nature centers, parks, camps) are encouraged to attend. Hands-On activities are required. This is not a passive lecture. Participants will receive an activity book and certificate at the end of the workshop.
