Education. Empower. Act.
The mission of Creeks and Kids is to involve children, adults and educators in learning about their watershed so they can help maintain watershed health in whatever ways are approrpriate form them and their watershed. In Oregon, we invite you to join us in educating children about the most precious resource on the planet - water. The workshop staff is a team of experienced classroom teachers, aquatic education specialists, and biologists who have been involved with Creeks and Kids for many years. The staff excels in helping participants acquire the knowledge, skills and confidence to use their local streams and watersheds as learning sites, another way to meet Oregon's education standards.
Field experiences and classroom activities from The Stream Scene: Watersheds, Wildlife, and People, and Project Aquatic WILD are featured in the workshop. These, as well as many other innovative materials, are provided to each participant. Contact: Dr. Adele Schepige 503-838-8485 firstname.lastname@example.org
In Oregon, the Project Wet work began in 1993 with the host location most recently at the Jackson Bottom Education Center. Last year Lin Howell, the coordinator retired so the program is moving to Western Oregon University and will be coordinated by Dr. Adele Schepige.
This workshop will be held in one of Oregon's premiere natural areas adjacent to the Strawberry Wilderness Area at Lake Creek Camp. Flyer to share
