Virtual Perry Education Days May 25th-27th

This year we will be doing Perry Education Days virtually again along with some in person activities.

We will be broadcasting via Microsoft Teams. So, if you would like to be part of these live events, click here to e-mail us, which sessions you would like to attend, and we will send you an invite to that session. The invite can be opened in Teams itself or via any internet browser if you do not want to download the app. If we get high responses, we may try to add more sessions. Each session will be between 10-15 minutes with another 10-15 minutes of Q&A
If you have any questions just email us at pevi_social_media @nps.gov.

If these live event times do not work for you, we do have the videos from last years virtual Perry Educations Days on YouTube and Facebook. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC87BD3C2BN1XldTmQvqtw6Q/videos
