Who: This workshop is open to all teachers around the country: any school, any subject, grades 4-12. 

What: The workshop will focus on Rookery Bay Research Reserve, specifically estuarine research, stewardship, and education.

Agenda: The content of the workshop will be based on NOAA's Estuaries 101 Middle School curriculum and will likely focus on topics such as: sharks, birds, plankton, invasive species, and water quality. We will spend each morning in the field, getting our feet wet exploring the Reserve.  Afternoons will be inside, meeting staff and learning about activities you can adapt for your classroom. A detailed agenda will be sent to registrants in June.

Prerequisite: There is some homework that must be completed before coming to the workshop.  This online training module will take approximately 8 hours, at your own pace, and be open in late May. Contact Sarah Falkowski for more details: 239-530-5975.

Food:  Lunch and snacks will be provided.  Please bring your own coffee mug and water bottle.

Accommodations:  GreenLinks Golf Villas at Lely Resort, located less than 10 minutes away from the Reserve, is offering a discounted room rate of $125/night for a 2-bedroom villa.

Cancellations: This workshop is first-come, first-served, with a waiting list (click on FULL to be added to waitlist).  If you are unable to fulfill your commitment, please notify us as soon as possible so we can open up the space to another teacher.
