Educator Stream Ecology Workshop

When: Wednesday, August 8, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Where: Stroud Water Research Center
Cost: $40 per person.  A donation to expand the partnership between the Stroud Center and Sultana Education Foundation is subsidizing the remainder of the cost of the workshop.

This workshop is part 1 of a two-part series. Part 2 of this workshop series is an August 13 canoe event on the Octoraro in which participants will apply what they’ve learned about testing water to a new stream while also learning about the history of the Octoraro, Susquehanna, and Chesapeake watersheds. Participants may attend one or both parts of this workshop series.
