Description

7TH ANNUAL COASTAL LEARNING SYMPOSIUM:

FOCUS ON THE ECOSYSTEMS

October 13, 2017 – Newport, OR


The Coastal Learning Symposium is an annual professional development opportunity for educators in Lincoln County School District and beyond. The goal of this conference is to give educators content, activities, and resources to engage students in learning about the ocean and coast.

Workshops will provide content knowledge and lesson ideas from both scientists and educators for major coastal habitats, including estuaries, tidepools, rivers, forests, and more. You will also explore these ecosystems with the experts at nearby field trip sites.

Registration includes access to over 20 different workshops and field trips, lunch and light refreshments, special behind-the-scenes experiences at Oregon Coast Aquarium, and more!
