ETV LEARN has a fun NEW course this fall: Exploring Naturalists Impacting SC & Beyond!

This 20 Renewal Credit course with South Carolina naturalist Rudy Mancke joins our fall lineup of 30+ courses to begin October 4, 2022. The study of naturalists combines history, natural history, art, and science … rolled into one as an interdisciplinary approach, and the course provides enlightening, informative professional development for educators of all subjects and grade levels. PLUS, learning with Rudy is engaging, inspiring and fun! 

Course Description:
With SC naturalist Rudy Mancke, host of SCETV’s NatureScene (shown nationally on public media stations for 25 years), this course examines key naturalists – those who came early and ones that followed – who made an impact in the Carolinas and beyond, exhibiting connections between humans and the natural world. Highlighted naturalists from the 1700s to today, include Lawson, Catesby, Linnaeus, Bartram, Abbot, Audubon, Bachman, Holbrook, Muir, Leopold, Comstock, Carson, Peterson, Humboldt, Wilson, and Romer. The course also includes related topics with new Short Takes with Rudy Mancke segments, NatureScene programs with “Rudy Xtras,” and online resources for K-12 classroom use.
