The New York Geographic Alliance and the Wayne Finger Lakes BOCES are joining forces to bring a watershed workshop to Newark (Wayne County). We are still working out the details, but it will be a full-day workshop on Tuesday May 22nd (6 hours), covering a variety of topics. They will include modeling watersheds, investigating maps to see change in a watershed, water quality testing, and using the FieldScope website to upload data.
Teachers from all grade levels and subject areas are welcome to attend. Registration is free, and you can sign up from the link on the right side of this page. Since this workshop is on a school day, NYGA can help pay for a substitute teacher, upon request. Teachers who complete this training are eligible to borrow our water testing kits, and we can subsidize student field trips to local watershed resources. For more information email Tim McDonnell or call the NYGA Office at (585)-292-2398.
