Implement Meaningful Watershed Education in Your School!

Are you a Pennsylvania K-12 teacher passionate about bringing relevant and real watershed education into your classroom? Learn how to implement Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs) to advance environmental literacy and stewardship while increasing standards-based student achievement! MWEEs are learner-centered experiences in which students investigate local environmental issues and complete informed action projects.

These hybrid (online and face-to-face) workshops will help teachers plug existing activities and lessons into the MWEE instructional framework. While becoming Certified MWEE Ambassadors, you will discover partnerships with environmental education (EE) providers in your region, plan how to bring the MWEE into your classroom, and participate in hands-on watershed education activities. EE providers are also welcome to attend.

Earn six hours of Act 48 in the face-to-face workshop! Please complete the MWEE 101 online course prior to the workshop to receive three additional hours of Act 48.

BONUS! All attending educators will receive environmental education instructional materials at the workshop. One attending school district will WIN a $500 stipend for instructional materials, and four others will receive $250!

Funding made possible through a generous B-WET grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA Grant #NA17NMF4570274).
