Classrooms to Communities: Using your local watershed as a teaching resource

Join EEPSA (Environmental Educators' PSA) and the City of Surrey's Department of Environment and Salmon Habitat Restoration Program (SHaRP) to explore how you can use your local watershed as a teaching space.  We'll spend the day outside at a local park digging into the role of place-based education in the renewed curriculum and experiencing hands-on learning opportunities led by SHaRP staff and Surrey teachers.  This workshop will build on our workshop from last year at Fleetwood Creek, and will continue to nurture our expanding community of place-based educators in the Surrey School District.  A locally-sourced lunch will be provided for all registered participants, thanks to the City of Surrey! 

Meet at Elgin Heritage Park at 13723 Crescent Road at the covered picnic tables in the west end of the park. This park is further west along Crescent Road from the Stewart Farm site.
