Escalante Program Prep


The following resources are suggestions for you to explore prior to the program. Watching/reading through as many of these as possible will make our discussions, both formal and informal, more extensive and meaningful. We ask that all participants put at least 15 hours of study towards these resources. This is the number of preparation hours we will be counting towards your continuing education credits - if you opted for them in your add-on survey.

This is not an exhaustive list -and we are still add new resources here for you -so check back later! This is meant as a first stop for some background knowledge of the topics of this program. At the end of the Grand Staircase - Escalante Program we will be sharing a folder of some practical tools/resources and lesson plans for you to use. If you have something to add, GEA would welcome your ideas.
