Forests to Faucets
Cancelled. Rescheduled date TBD
A Project Learning Tree & Project WET Workshop for Educators
In this interactive workshop you will explore the relationship between the health of our mountain forests and the quantity and quality of our drinking water. Do you know your connection to the Gulf of Mexico? To the western slope of Colorado? To your own watershed?
Learn how to use interdisciplinary, inquiry and content-rich activities to teach “how to think, not what to think” about complex environmental issues that incorporate technology and literacy as well as how to present material to a culturally diverse audience and include multicultural perspectives. Get wet in the Plum Creek watershed, and help with a forest restoration project.
Dress for the out-of-doors, be prepared for hiking, and splashing!
