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.

          Participants will conduct a biological survey of a stream, measure physical parameters of the stream, and measure chemical properties of the water as well as receive classroom instruction. Learn how to help your students explore the watershed around them.

Attendees to the workshop will receive a copy of the watershed education curriculum. Participants can also receive 11.5 Act 48 hours upon completion of the workshop and 3 hours of pre-workshop assignments.
