The Green Guru Workshop

We had begun the "Green Guru " concept in an attempt to get the school teachers to know a little more about butterflies . We hoped that they would be able to incorporate it in the nature trails that they conduct for the students and that in turn would get the young minds curious and interested .This initiative supported by Department of Science , Technology & Environment is aimed at training and creating resource persons on “butterflies and their role in their ecosystem “ . Primarily targeted at teachers, this has found enthusiastic participation from young enthusiasts , amateurs as well as people engaged in eco tourism. It has evolved from being just that to being an interactive forum on all aspects of butterflies - we had a macro photography workshop conducted by Indian Foundation of Butterflies under Hemant Ogale and Gaurav Agavekar last December . Also with so many experts visiting us , it may be a good idea  to organise their lectures to coincide with their visits.

Meanwhile under what we had started with , Butterfly Conservatory Of Goa is organising the last of the series of 5 workshops of “ Green Guru “ on November 4 , 2012  . The workshop will be between 9:00 am to 3:00 pm and the venue will be :
