EECOI - PLACE Gathering
February 25, 2020 | 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM
Tacoma Nature Center
1919 S Tyler St

There is a new PLACE in the watershed.

Join us to Practice, Learn And Connect to the Environment.  

Tuesday, February 25th - Using LGBTQ+ Inclusive Language
 Educators can unintentionally alienate LGBTQ+ learners when using certain terms for groups, individuals, and the concepts they teach. Together we will explore ways that this can happen, and then we’ll discuss a newly-developed inclusive language guide that includes a number of alternatives for some of the most commonly-used phrases.

Who: You! Anyone interested in environmental learning.   

What: A community of practice for learners and educators in the Puyallup River Watershed. We are a peer-facilitated group that:

·        shares resources,

·        tries new teaching strategies,

·        discusses problems of practice, and

·        dreams up new partnerships.


This community of practice is a part of the

Environmental Education Community of Interest (EECOI).       

When: 4th Tuesday of each month, 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Where: Tacoma Nature Center (1919 S. Tyler St in Tacoma)

Invite a friend and pass this along! No RSVP is necessary.
