The staff at Presque Isle loves to hold workshops in the off season so that learning about the park is a year round experience.
One question is how to do that with current COVID-19 restrictions?
Each fall and winter staff members at Presque Isle State Park stay busy offering a wide array of programs on various park topics.
When the fight against COVID-19 limited in-person classes, the staff had to find another solution, and started working on online workshops.
“We’ve really made some good progress as far as that’s concerned.” said John Laskos.
It hasn’t always been easy as the staff adapted the classroom material for online. But, as the staff got better, the interest started to grow.
“There’s been some technical glitches we’ve had to overcome along the way as we learned new platforms to deliver these presentations, but for the most part they’ve been well-received, we’re getting larger audiences and people can tune in and learn in the comfort and safety of their own home and we hope that this will continue.”
