This six hour teacher professional development workshop will guide you through activities and considerations to engage your students in citizen science stream and restoration monitoring activities.

Field and classroom activities include:

  • What is citizen science and how it can be tied to the curriculum?
  • Macroinvertebrates as a bioindicator of stream health.
  • Water chemistry.
  • Stream habitat and flow.
  • Riparian tree planting monitoring.
  • Registration and Act 48 hours

Registration fee only $10. Pizza and salad lunch provided.
