Event Description

May 6, 2014 Updated May 6, 2014 at 1:15 PM EDT

The Allen County Partnership for Water Quality (ACPWQ) is hosting another Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) certification workshop. This workshop is designed to train educators of all sorts in the use of the 60+ activities contained in the 2nd generation Project WET activity manual.

Project WET has many new activities and features with many of them meeting ISTEP teaching standards. These standards are correlated in an index of the book, free with completion of the workshop and also the web. It is a fun and informative way to educate your students, staff or anyone on one of the most vital resources on the planet-water.

“Understanding the water resources which define our area is essential to understanding the benefits and challenges we put to them.” Matt Jones, Water Resource Educator and Project WET Facilitator, states that; “…Only by studying the whole picture do we see how the vitality of water and ourselves is connected. We live in the Lake and Rivers District of Indiana and we depend on this resource every day.”

The workshop will be held from 9am to 3pm on Friday, May 23th. There is no charge for this workshop but pre-registration is necessary. To register, please contact the Allen County Partnership for Water Quality office at: www.acwater.org or by dialing 26-/484-5848 x 111. The workshop will be held at the Envision Center at 916 S. Calhoun St., Ft. Wayne, IN 46802. Space is limited to 8 people. Deadline for registration is Tuesday, May 20th.

Project WET is part of the programming of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and is paid for through the Division of Fish and Wildlife Sportsman’s Fund.
