A workshop on educating students about air quality has been rescheduled and another on climate change in Southern forests is scheduled on consecutive days July 23-24 at Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery near Jamestown.
“Southeastern Forests and Climate Change,” which will introduce a new Project Learning Tree (PLT) secondary module on climate change impacts on Southern forest ecosystems, the role of forests in sequestering carbon and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to changing climatic conditions, will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 23.
The PLT module will include activities designed for use in life science, environmental science and agriculture classes in grades 9-12, with adaptations for middle school classes.
“Air Quality for Educators,” a hands-on day of environmental education designed to make the abstract world of air quality more tangible originally scheduled for June 12, will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 24.
Participants will participate in activities and receive resources that can make air quality come alive for students. Materials for this workshop are geared toward students in grades 4-8, but those who work with other grades are also welcome.
The registration fees are $15 on July 23 and $10 on July 24; the registration deadline is July 13. Email Moria Painter for more information.
