Join the Inland Seas Education Association (ISEA) and the Great Lakes Water Studies Institute (GLWSI) for the 7th Annual Invasive Species Field Course on July 28-30, 2008 in Traverse City, Michigan! The Invasive Species Field Course has been developed to teach educators and environmental professional about invasive species in the Great Lakes region, and to prepare them to effectively teach their students, colleagues, and volunteers about invasive species.

 

The Invasive Species Field Course will provide a unique combination of professional seminars at Northwestern Michigan College’s Great Lakes Campus and hands-on field experience aboard ISEA’s 77-foot schooner Inland Seas. Participants will learn about initiatives to help reduce the introduction and spread of new invasive species, ways to incorporate invasive species concepts into classroom teaching, and experimental design for invasive species research projects. Emphasis will be on aquatic invasive species and the concept of “prevention through education.”
