What to Bring: We will be inside and outside for a portion of the day. Bring the following to the workshop: layered clothing based upon the weather, packed lunch and water (preferably trash free), note-taking material (optional), or other items for your comfort level (i.e. insect repellent, sunglasses, etc.).


These particular Bridging the Watershed (BTW) workshops are only for teachers of Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS). There are two different levels of training:BTW 101 and BTW 201. For a description of each, see below.


BTW 101: This workshop is designed only for PGCPS teachers unfamiliar with BTW and NPS and have not done a BTW field study. The focus will be on the mechanics of the program and familiarization of the parks. The highlighted module of the workshop will be lighter and truncated.


BTW 201: This workshop is designed only for PGCPS teachers who have attended a BTW workshop or institute in the recent past. Teachers attending this workshop must have participated in a BTW field study within the past two school years. The focus will be on delving deeper into the professional knowledge base of a module’s content. There is little focus on programmatic mechanics.
