Stream & watershed professional development opportunity for teachers


LIBERTY, NY — Teachers from Tri-Valley, Fallsburg, and Liberty school districts are invited to attend a free professional development opportunity on Thursday, April 24. Sullivan County school teachers in the NYC Watershed can receive a free training on stream and watershed education offered by Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Sullivan County. This event will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Gerald J. Skoda Extension Education Center.

Through a three-hour program and the opportunity for future in-class support, CCE educators aim to enhance in-school watershed education in Sullivan County. Grant funding has made it possible for CCE educators to provide trainings to teachers at no cost to them. Teachers completing the training will have a good understanding about watershed science and the impact of land use practices on water quality, stream processes (erosion and deposition), and the impact of infrastructure and management practices on flood risk.

Teachers must pre-register by Monday, April 14. Call 845/292-6180 or email mml249@cornell.edu.
