Munising, MI – On Thursday, August 1st, educators who work with students in grades 6 through 12 are invited to attend “Exploring Water”, an educators’ workshop at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Participants will visit a wetland in the park, learn about park-based research, and take a boat ride along the shore of Lake Superior. They will also try many hands-on activities associated with water and water quality monitoring which they, in turn, can use with their students. Lessons are correlated with the Michigan Science Education Standards.

Teachers participating in the workshop will receive the Healthy Water Healthy People (HWHP) Water Quality Educators Guide and the HWHP Field Monitoring Guide (a $35 value) upon completion of the day’s activities.
