Support ‘Forests to Faucets’ Project
SJMA, Mountain Studies Institute, the Water Information Program and Fort Lewis College have teamed up again to offer another ‘Forests to Faucets: My Water Comes from the San Juan Mountains’ Teacher Workshop!
The free workshop includes two days of hands-on place-based teacher training designed around the children’s book My Water Comes from the San Juan Mountains. The workshop scheduled for June 2017 will include hands-on exploration of the San Juan River. Our investigations will be based on the My Water Comes from the San Juan Mountains book and curriculum guide which includes place-based lessons that address Colorado State standards. Online registration is now open on the Mountain Studies Institute website.
Expert guest speakers
Field visits to rivers, reservoirs, water treatment plants
My Water kit and Teacher’s guide provided for use at your school
Optional 1 credit from Fort Lewis College (additional fee) upon completion of course and homework
Certificate for 14 contact hours
We need a little extra support!
If you just read about the ‘Forests to Faucets’ teacher workshop, you will agree that this sort of training is invaluable. However, it does cost something for SJMA and our partners to make this workshop possible. We have received grants to cover most of the costs but we are still looking for some matching funds.
Maybe you have a little extra from your tax return or you are just looking to help nurture watershed education? Whatever your reason, please contact us if you are willing to add more the the ‘Forests to Faucets: My Water Comes from the San Juan Mountains’ teacher workshop fund.
