In-Service Education Opportunity
Galena Creek Field Institute
Wednesday & Thursday, October 9-10, 2019
Join area conservation specialists and educators at Galena Creek Regional Park to learn field methods in aquatic monitoring and stream restoration. Get your hands dirty during this two day in service workshop that explores interdisciplinary approaches to the study of stream and forest ecology and the practice of ecological restoration as a service learning activity. As we study Galena Creek, educators will utilize information provided through instructor and guest lectures, readings, and hands-on problem solving to support pedagogical approaches to K-12 field study. This course provides instructional tools that help students achieve goals established by the Next Generation Science Standards in ways that emphasize critical thought across the disciplines.
Lab Fee: $75. Students will be reimbursed by the Great Basin Institute upon successfully completion of this 1 credit in service workshop (*pending DOE approval) through funds made possible by a generous grant from the Truckee River Fund. Educators may also receive a travel stipend for their students to join restoration activities at Galena Creek during the fall 2019 school year.
