5 Exotic Species Educator Day Camps in 1998

5 Exotic Species Educator Day Camps in 1998

The Great Lakes Sea Grant Network is announcing
the following opportunity for classroom and
non-formal educators to learn about aquatic
exotic species such as zebra mussels, round gobies,
and purple loosestrife. Fees and sign up
deadlines vary by program.

Through hands-on experience using various Sea
Grant educational resource kits, CD-ROMs,
internet resources, and training packages, educators
will explore the impact of these species on the natural
world and on industrial and recreational water users.

Teachers with fellow participants will prepare a lesson
plan on exotic aquatics. These lessons will then be
compiled into a collection of activities, to
be made available to schools throughout the country.

Exotic Day Camp attendees can use the new
materials and skills developed
at this workshop to help students become
environmentally aware while possibly
fulfilling state science education requirements
(please check with your individual state requirements).

Participants will receive honoraria and free
instructional materials that
will enable them to carry over the day's
experiences to their classrooms.
