13th Annual Delaware River Watershed Education Youth Eco-Leadership Summit

A Conference for Middle and High School Students (6th-12th Graders) Focusing on Research and Activities in the Delaware River Watershed

April 30, May 1-2, 2006 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 are invited to share research and stewardship initiatives on local watersheds as they network and participate in educational seminars with other students and professionals during this three-day event.

This year the focus of the summit is Biodiversity in the Delaware River Basin, and the students will interact with scientists who are actively researching biodiversity, as well as conduct biodiversity studies themselves. For additional information, please check out the 2006 Summit's flyer with attached intent form (pdf 39 KB).

Schools are each encouraged to send a team of approximately six students to represent their watershed by conducting a 15-minute presentation and sharing an exhibit of their watershed research/action project.

One or more designated adults from the school district must be in attendance and responsible for students at all times during the conference.

The primary sponsor of this event is the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), Bureau of State Parks - Delaware River Watershed Education. The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) is pleased to support this very worthwhile, educational program.
