Coach Workshop

Outdoor Workshop for High School Teachers:

Hands-on Science in Massachusetts Ecosystems

Do your students have the practical knowledge of local ecosystem services and natural resource management that will enable them to contribute to solutions in an era of changing climate?  This workshop aims to equip YOU with background & skills & approaches for introducing high school students to 21st century natural resource conservation & management – with connections to Next Generation Science Standards and ideas for how to take advantage of the new Civic Engagement Requirement.

Special Note:  Many of our most successful Envirothon teams partner with a local natural resource organization.  You are welcome to invite a potential partner to check out the program!

All this and more at Mass Envirothon’s field workshop for coaches on Tuesday August 6th.  Spend the day outside with natural resource professionals learning basic skills and knowledge for natural resource management, and how to share this with your team.
