As a result of our continued interest in Hofmann Forest as the home of the headwaters for both the White Oak and New rivers, and working with Dr. Fred Cubbage & his assistant Kris Fowler on Citizen Science on the Hofmann project, Izaak Walton League of America National has offered to bring us this awesome Creek Freaks training course! This will include using benthic macroinvertebrate biodiversity as water quality indicators (aka “little water bugs”), but it’s going to be more than just that. It’s designed to help us more effectively engage the youth and volunteers in our community by delivering fun and effective watershed lessons. Creek Freaks training equips educators with the knowledge and skills to do this! Join us for a two day workshop where we will explore exciting hands on lessons and curriculum, and venture outside for Save Our Streams stream monitoring training!
Training takes place August 20th & 21st from 10am to 5pm @ 287 Hadnot Farm Rd., Swansboro, NC 28585. Please register no later than August 10th. See flyer for details.
