Advanced Watershed Educator Workshops For Non-Formal Educators Coming Up
A series of Advanced Watershed Educator Workshops for Non-Formal Educators will be held at three locations in the next six months as part of the NOAA Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences series.
Stakeholders across Pennsylvania are working to support students to graduate with the knowledge and skills to protect and restore their local watershed through the participation in Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences or MWEEs.
MWEEs are learner-centered experiences that focus on investigations into local environmental issues that lead to informed action and civic engagement. They depend on the facilitation and support of both school and non-formal, field-based educators for the experiences to be holistic and impactful.
These workshops will help prepare non-formal environmental education providers to partner with K-12 classroom teachers on an MWEE.
This workshop series has been designed to provide a deep understanding of the MWEE as a vehicle for advancing environmental literacy and stewardship while increasing standards-based student achievement.
Workshops are free and include a catered lunch, snacks and refreshments and will be held--
-- October 23-24: Sinnemahoning State Park, 4843 Park Road, Austin, Potter County. Click Here to register.

The workshops are produced by a partnership of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation-PA, Stroud Water Research Center, DCNR, Penn State Extension, Millersville University and NOAA - Chesapeake Bay.
