Project WET, Water Education for Teachers, is water-based science education using hands-on activities and proven teaching and learning skills. The materials are adaptable for adults and students at all levels. Participants will be introduced to the instructional materials and teaching activities will be demonstrated. Special emphasis is given to the south Florida environment with region-specific materials and instruction.
 
Complimentary books and teaching materials will be distributed.

A field trip to the CREW Hiking Trails is included. We will follow the trails through pine flatwoods, a saw grass marsh, pop ash slough, and oak hammock learning about the south Florida plants, birds, fish and other animals that inhabit these areas.
 
Dress comfortably and bring water and a sack lunch!

 

Co-sponsored by the CREW Land & Water Trust, FGCU, and the South Florida Water Management District.

Organizer

CREW Land & Water Trust

The CREW Land & Water Trust was established in 1989 as a nonprofit organization to coordinate the land acquisition, land management, and public use of the 60,000-acre Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed. We work closely with our partners, the South Florida Water Management District and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to ensure the protection of the watershed. This watershed, the largest intact watershed in south Florida, straddles Lee and Collier Counties and provides aquifer recharge, natural flood protection, water purification, preservation of wildlife habitat, and public recreation.  CREW's majestic 5,000-acre marsh is the headwaters for the entire watershed.
