HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -

The teacher became the student on Tuesday, as local educators took part in the Sodalis Nature Preserve teacher workshop in Hannibal.

Around 30 area teachers learned about Sodalis and how they can use the area to help kids learn about nature. Teachers learned about the bat population and why it is important to protect it. Coordinators said the idea is for teachers to take what they learned and teach it to all their students. 

"My goal is for teachers to utilize this information to get their kids outside and really engage in nature," said Kathi Moore with the Missouri Department of Conservation. "Kids don't go outside and flip over rocks as much as they used to when I was growing up."

Moore said she hopes to have another workshop in Spring.
