DRBC Staff Gives Pa. Educators a Watershed Tour of the DRB

Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (PA DCNR) held a Watershed Education Teacher Training Workshop on March 25, 2015 at the Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center in Nazareth, Pa. This day-long training was the first part of a two-day workshop that will culminate on April 1, 2015. The first day was classroom-based and focused on giving teachers an introduction to watershed education; the second part of the workshop will take the educators into the field to practice outdoor lesson plans.

During the first day of the workshop, DRBC Communications Assistant Kate Schmidt provided the group with a watershed tour of the Delaware River Basin. Her presentation (pdf 7 MB) provided an overview of the Delaware River Basin and of DRBC and its various programs.   

This workshop was a great opportunity for teachers and environmental educators to learn how to bring watershed education into their classrooms in a fun, informative way using available materials and hand-on, outdoor activities.
