Watershed Science in Olympic National Park for K – 12 Teachers
NEW DATES Please note the workshop begins on Tuesday, June 27 and ends on Friday, June 30, 2017.Workshop dates were changed to accommodate delays in the final day for some WA State school districts. Explore marine and fresh water habitats in Olympic National Park watersheds with your colleagues and NatureBridge educators in an invigorating, hands-on learning environment.  Climb down to rocky Tongue Point to explore the sub-tidal zone of one of the most exceptional tidepools of the Pacific Northwest on the Strait of Juan de Fuca.  Paddle a Salish canoe on Lake Crescent to investigate the geomorphology and the biotic inhabitants of this spectacularly clear, cold water glacial-carved lake.  Follow the trails of Barnes Point to the 2,100 foot watershed boundary where sub-alpine vegetation thrives on rocky slopes. Participate in hands-on field studies using NGSS practices of science. Gain confidence and skills to teach students to apply the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) practices of science when you return to school in the fall.
