Environmental Educator Workshop

  • Friday, October 21, 2016
  • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Canon City, Colorado

The City of Cañon City’s Stormwater Program is offering a free 2 hour workshop on STEM education and stormwater management:  students investigating stormwater, with guidance from educators, engineers and other environmental professionals, and devising novel solutions to stormwater runoff.  The workshop is an introduction to the “Keep It Clean – Neighborhood Environmental Trios” Program through Denver Public Works and Earth Force. This workshop and the KIC-NET program would be a valuable tool for all those interested in environmental education.

The program provides schools with STEM units focused on watershed investigations leading to action projects.  The workshop provides information and hands-on training.  At the end of the workshop the attendees will be given some of the KIC-NET training materials.

The workshop will be held at City Hall in the Council Chambers from 1-3 pm on Friday, October 21.  See attached flyer.  Some of the workshop exercises may be held outside, weather permitting.  If you have waders please bring them with you. 

Please RSVP at grdebekker@canoncity.org or by calling 276-5265.  And please feel free to pass the invitation along to others you feel would be interested in attending the workshop.  There is not a limit on the amount of attendees.
