The Chicago Conservation Corps (C3), a program of the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, is now recruiting teachers to lead school-based environmental clubs for the 2014-2015 school year.  Attend an orientation to learn how C3 can help you start and run an environmental service club for 6th-12th grade CPS students.


Club projects include recycling, worm composting, water conservation, energy efficiency campaigns, art projects made from repurposed materials, and much more. Teachers involved receive a stipend, materials, project guides, CPDUs and other resources.  This program is at no cost to the school.


Orientations will take place:


  • Tuesday, April 8 – Chicago Center for Green Technology, 445 N. Sacramento Blvd., 5 – 6 p.m.
  • Wednesday, April 9 – Disney II Elementary, 3815 N. Kedvale, 5 – 6 p.m.
  • Thursday, April 10 – Pathways in Education, 3284 W. 87th St., 5 – 6 p.m.


Please reserve a seat at an orientation by visiting or calling 773-755-5177.


To apply you must be a CPS or charter school teacher (6th – 12th grades) and attend an orientation. If you are accepted into the program, you must attend three workshops in the 2014-2015 school year.
