Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources - Lake Michigan Watershed Field Experience Course

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources educators will conduct week-long professional development watershed field courses for twenty-five middle and high school teachers living within the Lake Michigan watershed in each of three locations: Milwaukee, Green Bay, and Kenosha, Wisconsin. The field courses will introduce teachers to the Lake Michigan watershed using field trips to local agriculture and industry, streams, beaches, hatcheries, and restoration sites. Teachers will be trained to use the Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide, Great Lakes in My World Activity Guide and Wisconsin’s Water Action Volunteers stream monitoring program. Teachers will use the field experiences and curriculum materials from the course to educate peers, to bring watershed education into their classrooms and to design and conduct a watershed-based field trip for their students
