WATERSHED TEACHING TOOLS
Mon.-Fri., Aug. 4-8 at UC Berkeley Field Station, Richmond, 9:30 am-3 pm.
Cost: $99.

Our intensive summer institute program provides five days of training in watershed awareness and education. This comprehensive environmental education program includes information and activities about watershed and creek ecology of the San Francisco Bay, basic gardening concepts for a healthy watershed, reducing pesticides and toxins around your home and school, and pollution prevention and waste reduction.

You will receive course binders from our "Kids in Gardens," "Kids in Creeks," and "Green Schools, Green Gardens" workshops, with activities correlated with state standards (K-12). You will also go home with watershed maps, worm bins to start a composting program, and seeds and plants to get you started immediately. The final day of the weeklong series includes an optional canoe trip on the Bay.
*Hands-on activities at Baxter Creek, Stege Marsh and in our Demonstration Teaching Garden.
4 CEU available
