Join EEPSA (the 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 Blackie Spit in Crescent Beach digging into what makes good place-based education, and experiencing hands-on learning opportunities led by a range of Surrey teachers and community educators. This workshop is geared toward all teachers in all grades and disciplines, and will nurture an expanding community of place-based educators in the Surrey School District. A locally-sourced lunch will be provided.
Please dress to be outside all day.
This session is full.
