All About Aquatics! Workshop in February at Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery

Are you looking for a reason to brush off your winter “cabin fever” and get outdoors? What about learning new ways to better connect with the outdoors, especially when it comes to aquatic education? If this has your attention, then check out the following as Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery has some great workshops coming up in February!

 

Are you a teacher, 4-H leader, Girl Scout or Boy Scout volunteer, etc? Would you like to learn new ways to better acquaint your students and participants with the aquatic world around them? If so, then be sure and register for the Friday, February 25th, 2011 All About Aquatics Workshop at the hatchery!

 

With all things aquatic as the theme, enjoy a workshop that is all about hands-on, engaging activities geared towards connecting students in grades K through 12 with the natural world around them. Utilizing curriculums based on national standards, the training event will give participants access to Project WET (Water Education for Teachers), WOW! Wonders of Wetlands and the Biologist-in-Training (BiT) curricula. Since 1984, Project WET, an award-winning 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has dedicated itself to the mission of reaching children, parents, teachers and community members of the world with water education. The mission of Project WET is to reach children, parents, educators and communities of the world with water education. Building on the concepts found in Project WET, WOW! features over 50 multidisciplinary activities correlated to National Science Standards. Leave this workshop with activities you can do with your students to better their understanding of the ecological function and value of wetlands and ways to promote informed decision-making regarding wetlands.  The Biologist-in-Training (BiT) Program, a first for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Southeast Region’s Fisheries team, centers on a booklet that includes 5 activities geared towards teaching kids to use their observation skills while in the outdoors. Completion of the booklet activities is also flexible as the activities can be completed at the hatchery, at home, etc.  Added layers form a program that offers further aid in studying aquatic habitats, including extension activity bins, a stream survey bin, etc.

 

During this one day training, participants will walk away with a myriad of resources, including three curricula (e.g. Project WET, WOW! and materials from the Biologist-in-Training Program) along with additional make and take ideas/items. The registration fee for the class is $45.00 per person, which includes the materials above along with all programming and materials, lunch and snacks. The class is set to start at 9 a.m. CST and will complete at 3:30 p.m. CST. Deadline to register is scheduled for Friday, February 11th, 2011. For more information and/or how to register, please contact Environmental Education/Outreach Specialist Amanda G. Patrick at 270-343-3797 or via email: Amanda_Patrick@fws.gov
