2018 Macroinvertebrate Workshop for Educators


MACROINVERTEBRATE WORKSHOP FOR EDUCATORS
LEARN ABOUT THESE INDICATORS OF WATER QUALITY
AND BUILD AN ONLINE IDENTIFICATION TOOL TO USE WITH YOUR STUDENTS!

 
Wednesday, July 25th, 10:00am-3:00pm
Saint Michael’s College
Program and Lunch are FREE

 
Join us for a day of learning about macroinvertebrate communities in Vermont streams. Involving students in sampling and identifying macroinvertebrate communities is a terrific place-based, hands-on approach to teaching standards addressing earth systems, ecology, human activities and impacts on natural resources, biodiversity, and environmental change.
 
TEACHERS WILL:
  • Identify macroinvertebrates found in Vermont’s streams
  • Learn which taxa indicate good vs. poor water quality
  • Locate a stream near their school
  • Prepare a WikiEducator webpage to facilitate students’ identification of the taxa found at nearby stream site
RSVP by July 18th: email cwdd@smcvt.edu or call (802) 654-3270
