Watershed Education (WE) is an inquiry-based, interdisciplinary curriculum for students in grades 6 -12. Developed by the DCNR Bureau of State Parks, WE helps educators utilize local natural resources as a valuable teaching tool. By blending hands-on classroom and field investigations modeled on professional research methodologies, students participate in data collection and analysis, community networking and partnerships, stewardship and service learning activities. WE promotes in-depth, multi-modal learning and understanding of water resources while encouraging students to examine their watershed holistically.
Educators attending this workshop will receive the Bureau of State Parks award-winning Watershed Education curriculum and additional resource materials. Educators will also have access to
communication opportunities among schools through a database and student conferences.
Morning coffee and snacks are provided, but please bring a bag lunch. This workshop will be rain or shine, so dress for the weather.
