    Aquatic Resources Education Grants Conference Workshop Descriptions

Wetland Education Resources, Programs, Opportunities Two Hour Workshop

    Bronwyn Mitchell, Environmental Concern, Inc.

    Maryland’s landscape is dominated by the Chesapeake Bay, a wetland of international importance. However, since the 1700’s Maryland has lost over 58% of its wetland resources and counting. This loss translates into a loss of habitat, nursery grounds for fish and shellfish, floodwater storage, storm surge protection, and water quality benefits. Environmental Concern has been “All about wetlands” since 1972. Come and learn how together we can bring wetlands alive and into the classrooms and lives of Maryland’s next generation with

    hands-on activities from WOW! The Wonders of Wetlands, schoolyard wetland habitats, small wetland nursery

    setup, and Wetland Youth Leadership.

    The goal of environmental education is to change student behavior in a positive way. Through the implementation of the environmental issue investigation procedure students learn how to be effective problem solvers and responsible citizens.

In this session, Outdoor School teachers will present not only this model, but illustrate its power to move students from knowledge to action! Handouts will be provided to ensure that you can integrate this process into your curriculum.
