FREE Summer Salmon Institute for Educators!
SPAWN with funding from NOAA's Bay-Watershed Education Training (BWET) will conduct a series of classroom and field training activities highlighting ways to incorporate coho salmon conservation and ocean and watershed ecology into all aspects of your education programs. SPAWN staff and expert guests will detail the pedagogy of a meaningful watershed experience and participants will gain the tools, skills, and resources to provide their students a meaningful watershed experience with their students and SPAWN. Salmon provide a critical connection between the oceans and inland watershed health, and our land use practices at school and at home affect this vital connection and the health of our watersheds.
