This series of workshops will introduce participants to SPN's new interpretation and educational outreach materials and provide guidance on how to incorporate these resources into their outreach activities in such a way as to inspire and enable visitors to act as citizen scientists, monitoring their neighborhoods for potential pest and pathogen threats. For new members, we will also provide an overview of SPN's diagnostic and First Detector training resources as well as the Plant Heroes youth education program.
Each of these regional workshops will serve approximately ten APGA member gardens, and we recommend that each organization send one or two staff members who can incorporate SPN educational materials into their organization’s interpretation and educational outreach activities.
