The Montana PBS is hosting this free virtual workshop for teachers about the imperiled whitebark pine.
Ghost Forests is the newest film from MontanaPBS. It tells the fascinating story of the imperiled whitebark pine. A native pest and an exotic disease are rapidly turning these vital trees into ghost forests. Land managers face an uphill battle to restore the species. MontanaPBS is hosting a special virtual workshop for teachers to preview clips of the film and hear from the producer and the scientists featured in the film about the whitebark pine and the challenges of preserving it. Teachers will be invited to explore free teaching resources developed by MontanaPBS to be used in the classroom. This FREE session will be on Thursday April 15 from 4pm-5pm via Zoom and is open to anyone who teaches science to students. One OPI credit will be awarded to teachers who attend the live session.
