Investigating Environmental Issues

in the Raritan Watershed

July 28 to August 1, 2014

Deepen your understanding of environmental issues facing society from the perspective of the local watershed.  Issues will be drawn from a spectrum of topics including water quantity and quality, sustainable land use and environmental practices, and native species protection and invasive species control.  Each day will focus on a different set of issues and provide field experience, lessons and resources to support your existing curricula.  Also included will be information on the National Wildlife Federation’s Eco-Schools USA program that supports sustainable practices through the development of school-based eco-teams. 

For more information contact:  Michael Pollock at 908-837-9341 or via email at michael.pollock@njaudubon.org


 Each day will include outdoor activities, along with indoor problem solving, focused on the local area.  By connecting the classroom to the real world, teachers help students become more aware of the world around them, and acquire the critical thinking, problem solving and basic life skills necessary to become informed global citizens.
