Slimy Leaves for Healthy Streams: A Training in the Leaf Pack Experiment
FREE 1-Day Workshop
Saturday, June 3
9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Agape Center for Environmental Education, Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina
The Leaf Pack Experiment is a fun, hands-on research and outreach tool for teachers and citizens of all ages, demonstrating how our actions on land impact life in streams and water quality. Leaf Pack promotes inquiry-based interdisciplinary watershed education and engages diverse audiences in conducting their own experiments, gathering relevant ecological data, exploring food webs, learning taxonomic classification skills, using technology to share data, comparing data with those of other communities, and applying that information to protect local watersheds.
Come learn about the Leaf Pack Experiment to study the health of your local streams! This workshop is intended for middle school and high school teachers, environmental educators, and citizens. Download the flyer for more information.
