Project Title & Description
NEW YORK TEACHERS GET WATER EDUCATION FOR TEACHERS (WET) FOR THE GREAT LAKES
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 112-10. This grant will support two five-day academies and 14 “Get WET for the Great Lakes” institutes at which teachers will be provided with content and methods for conducting watershed education experiences relating to the Buffalo River, Niagara River, Eighteen Mile Creek, and Rochester Embayment Areas of Concern in New York State. The project will target teachers from underserved schools and will empower teachers and students to protect fresh water resources through direct stewardship activities in their Areas of Concern. Following the training, teachers will receive support to help them integrate Great Lakes information into their curricula.
This action will modify the scope of work to include educators outside of the school system for certain training sessions.
