Take It Outside!

posted 3/7/2018

Hey, teachers! Is your school near Walnut Creek in the western part of the Metro? Do you want to take your class outdoors and teach in a local environmental setting? If you answered yes to either of these questions, Metro Waste Authority has the perfect opportunity for you!

We are partnering with Drake University to offer a professional development for teachers who want to learn how to create and conduct curriculum near the watershed. You can give students a chance to explore and discover what’s going on in their own backyards.

During the program you will learn how watersheds work, as well as the microbiology of streams, develop lesson plans you can take back to your classroom and much more! One Heartland AEA continuing education or a graduate school credit is available when you complete the course.

Sounds like a great opportunity, right? Getting registered is easy. Just use this link for more information and to sign up!

Activity Title: What’s in your watershed?

Activity Number: ST003799991901

Sessions: June 7-8.  A 30-minute working lunch break will be provided around noon.

Fee: Course registration is $85 (even if choosing the "no credit" option.) Continuing education credit is included in the registration and graduate credit is available for an additional $110/credit through Drake University.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!
