B-WET Watershed Symposium - Cornell University

Registration is still open! Please tell us if you are bringing students and if you need a table to showcase your watershed projects. The link is in the next paragraph and at the end of this article.  

The New York Geographic Alliance is pleased to invite teachers and students to Cornell University on Thursday, May 31, 2018 for the B-WET Watershed Symposium. It will be held in Emerson Hall on Tower Road from 10 AM to 2:30 PM. Teachers and their students will be presenting the work that they have done in their part of the watershed - water-testing, mapping, and service projects. All educators and youth are invited to join us for the day. The participants will be welcomed by Dr. Rebecca Schneider of Cornell University, who will discuss her work on Watershed Research and Stewardship. 

We especially want to offer teachers and students table space and presentation time if they have projects they want to share. (When registering below, indicate what you need in the comment section). This event is FREE. There will be a continental breakfast at 9:30 AM and lunch will be served at noon. We can also supply you with free parking on the Cornell Campus. A tag can be picked up at the information booth on Tower Road near Wing Road.
