Join an environmental educator from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for an introduction to Aquatic WILD. This interdisciplinary program for K-12 teachers and youth leaders emphasizes aquatic wildlife and aquatic ecosystems. We’ll sample activities from Aquatic WILD ensuring that participants are comfortable with the materials and ready to make use of them with the youth in their classrooms. Participants will receive a free Aquatic WILD K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide with 55 different hands-on activities which support New York State learning standards. This manual, updated in 2013, includes field studies, STEM connections and career exploration. More information about the materials is available at www.projectwild.org/projectwildwebsite/aquatic/. This is a fun, active, participatory workshop. Participants should dress for outdoor activity. Space is limited. If you have questions regarding the program, please contact Anthony Vicente, Extension Educator 518-828-3346 x206 or email [email protected].
