The Water Education Program is offering the following FREE teacher workshops for the 2016-2017 school year:
Saturday, January 28th, 2017
9:00am – 4:00pm
Teachers can raise steelhead in their own classrooms after
attending this workshop. This workshop is FREE, but space is limited!
Learn about your local watershed, the fish that live here and how you can raise steelhead in your classroom. This workshop qualifies teachers to apply for a permit to receive fish eggs from the Warms Springs Hatchery at Lake Sonoma and hatch steelhead fish in their classroom.
By attending this workshop you will not only garner a greater understanding of your local watersheds and fisheries, but we will also provide activities and lessons focused on watersheds, water quality, river systems, and the habitat needs of salmonids. Project WILD Aquatic certification will be included in this workshop.
Workshop attendees will receive:
- All aquarium equipment needed and instructions on how to set up your incubator
- Training on the permitting process for hatching fish in your classroom
- A copy of the new WILD About Trout multi-media program
- Project WILD curriculum guide
- Local watershed maps
- Posters on aquatic habitats and fish anatomy
This workshop is co-sponsored by the Water Agency, the California Department of Fish & Wildlife, and Redwood Empire Trout Unlimited.
Workshop location: Sonoma County Water Agency, Westside Education Center, 9703 Wohler Road, Forestville.
Lunch and snacks will be provided!
