Classrooms to Communities: Using your local watershed as a teaching resource at Blackie Spit in Crescent Beach

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.
