A Conference for Middle and High School Students Focusing on Research and Activities in the Delaware River Watershed
April 25-27, 2004 Tuscarora Inn, Mt Bethel, Pennsylvania
Recognized in 2001 as the Outstanding Environmental Education Program by the Pennsylvania Alliance for Environmental Education!
Students and teachers studying aspects of the Delaware River Watershed shared research and stewardship initiatives on local watersheds as they networked and participated in educational seminars with other students and professionals during this three-day event.
With positive environmental action in mind, the 2004 conference included:
- Hands-On Workshops for Students
- Environmental Career Orientation
- Professional Presentations
- Canoe Trip on Lake Nockamixon (Pa.) for Middle School Participants
- Ropes Course and Camping at Worthington State Forest (N.J.) for High School Participants
- Environment and Ecology Workshops for Teachers
Schools sent teams of approximately six students to represent their watershed by conducting a 20-minute presentation and preparing an exhibit of their watershed project. One or more designated adults from the school district were in attendance and took responsibility for students during the conference.
The primary sponsor of this event was the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), Bureau of State Parks - Delaware River Watershed Education. The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) was happy to support this very worthwhile, educational program.
