    Teachers to Love the Lake at End-of-Summer Workshop

    Just in time for the start of the school year, educators can get their feet wet and hands dirty learning about the creatures that call Lake Champlain home and a variety of other reasons to get out and Love the Lake with their students. The Champlain Basin Education Initiative (CBEI) will host a professional development workshop for Vermont, New York, and Québec educators on Thursday, August 17, 2017 at the Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center in Burlington, Vermont from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

    Workshop sessions will focus on macroinvertebrates, aquatic invasive species, plankton, cyanobacteria, the science of sailing, and the archaeology of fishing. Teachers can race runoff with a stormwater bike ride (it’s BYOBike), and early risers can join an optional morning paddle at the Community Sailing Center at 8:30 a.m. The fee for the workshop is $20 and includes lunch, snacks, and materials. Pre-registration is required.

    The Champlain Basin Education Initiative has provided professional development opportunities for more than 450 educators since 1991. CBEI partners include the Lake Champlain Basin Program, Shelburne Farms, Lake Champlain Sea Grant/UVM Watershed Alliance, Our Curriculum Matters, Lake Champlain Committee, ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain, Community Sailing Center, and Lake Champlain Maritime Museum.
