Place-Based Learning in the Yuba Watershed Workshop | Browns Valley, CA | September 30 – October 1, 2017

YUBA WATERSHED AREA EDUCATORS! The U.C. Sierra Foothill Research & Extension Center invites you to explore Place-based and Project-centered lessons from Project WET and Project Learning Tree, while learning about the flora, fauna and earth systems from local ecological experts to increase your understanding of California’s natural world. The training will include demonstration in the safe use of drones to explore local ecosystems. Each participant will walk away with hundreds of NGSS correlated activities with their own copies of Project WET and Learning Tree guides, an opportunity to register for CEU credit – and eligibility for additional grant funding through the Project Learning Tree GREENWORKS! program. A $50 registration fee includes all meals from lunch Saturday through lunch on Sunday and on-site lodging is available for $10/ night.

Cost: $50, plus $10 for each night you stay on site (available Friday and Saturday). Limited space, register soon!
