Join Project W.E.T. Coordinator Drew Hopkins with the NYSDEC, at the Albany Pine Bush Discovery Center on Sunday March 17th for a FREE Project W.E.T. training designed for educators. This national environmental educational curriculum aims to give educators the resources to incorporate the importance of water into almost any class.

Water Education Today
Project W.E.T seeks to inspire the next generation of water stewards by helping students to understand the value of water, and how working to protect it can help create a more sustainable future for us all. This is done by following a few core beliefs:

  1. Water Connects us All
  2. Water is for all water users
  3. Water must be managed sustainably
  4. Water depends on personal responsibility and action

Participants will receive a Project W.E.T. workbook loaded with activities to help incorporate water education into the classroom and meet next generation standards. Project W.E.T. course completion will also open up a host of online resources through the website.

CTLE Credit may also be attained by attending and completing the full course.

In the event of a snow day, we will postpone until March 24th.
