Location: Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education

Enjoy a day-long workshop investigating water quality and empower your students to protect their local waterways! Learn about watersheds and water quality stressors. Discover how pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) impact our water and our health. Participants will explore hands-on activities focused on water quality and the Great Lakes that can be brought back to the classroom, and get hands-on training with real monitoring equipment used by scientists in the field. 

Upon completion of the training, educators can borrow this equipment for up to 2 weeks for use in their classroom during the school year!  Educators completing the workshop will receive a copy of the Healthy Water Healthy People Curriculum. 

This workshop is designed for middle school and high school educators and is co-sponsored by Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant, the Center for Great Lakes Literacy, Indiana University Northwest, Dunes Learning Center, and the Great Lakes Research and Education Center.  Cost:  $10.
