Area Educators to Learn About Farming and Water Quality in the Lake Champlain Basin

“Stewards of the Land: Farming for Water Quality in the Champlain Basin” is an exciting opportunity for educators of grades 4-8 in New York, Vermont, and Quebec to learn more about Lake Champlain. This workshop, sponsored by the Champlain Basin Educators Initiative (CBEI), will be held on April 30 from 8:30 to 15:30 at Shelburne Farms.

Farmers, researchers, conservationists, representatives from Foodworks and PROJECT WET facilitators will be on hand.

The fee is $15.00 for the workshop, which includes copies of This Lake A1ive! An Interdisciplinary Handbook for Teaching and Learning About the Lake Champlain Basin by Amy Demarest and Project Wet.
