Involve students in nature investigations at your local stream, while meeting Maryland Environmental Curriculum requirements. We invite you and others at your school or in your organization to participate in the Creek Freaks Teachers’ Workshop to learn how to connect children with nature using streams as living classrooms.
At this workshop, you will learn indoor and outdoor activities that teach concepts of stream ecology and function; how to monitor water quality using chemical, physical, and biological techniques; how to run hands-on stream activities from the Holding Onto the GREEN Zone Action Guide; how to track stream data with www.creekfreaks.net, and ways to extend environmental concepts to other subjects.
The training is best suited to teachers of grades 4-8 and to nonformal environmental educators and volunteers interested in connecting children to nature.
A $25/person registration fee includes lunch on both days, books, and materials with a value of over $30. Parking is FREE.
