Subject: Satilla River Watershed Program- 8 PLUs!
To: [log in to unmask]
Hello! I am writing because I have a summer workshop opportunity for
teachers that I would really appreciate your help in advertising.
Denise Carroll with the UGA Warnell School of Forestry and Natural
Resources received a Teacher Quality Grant for an 8 PLU workshop
entitled “The Satilla River Watershed Program” to be held on June 15-23,
Unfortunately, the teachers she had registered for the workshop have
backed out and she needs 14 teachers to register in order to make this
If you could please distribute the attached brochures to any interested
teachers you may know, I certainly would appreciate it!
ABOUT THE SATILLA RIVER WATERSHED PROGRAM
This workshop will engage teachers who live and work in or near the
Satilla River watershed to explore its ecological links to, similarities
to, and differences with the Okefenokee Swamp, mighty Altamaha system,
and estuaries of Georgia's Golden Isles. Teachers will develop an
understanding of this 260 mile black water river system, its aquatic and
terrestrial systems. Teachers will interact with scientists and
government officials to analyze issues impacting water quality and their
role in preserving one of Georgia’s unimpeded and more natural rivers.
Teachers will be certified to teach Project Wet and Project Wild. The
competencies gained will be used to construct learning experiences for
the classroom. Workshop follow-up in the fall will include communication
via a Wiki website, and on-site data collection for analysis with
students, culminating with a meeting to share experiences. This workshop
offers resources to develop environmental understandings and continuing
support as teachers integrate these projects.
