http://www.dec.ny.gov/education/1835.html

Living Environment Institute: MARVELOUS MIGRATIONS

Dates: Tuesday, August 14 – Thursday, August 16, 2018 Time: 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, with an evening program on Wednesday (light dinner provided) Location: Five Rivers Environmental Education Center, 56 Game Farm Road, Delmar, NY Cost: $60.00 To register or for more information, call 518-475-0291 or email 5Rivers@dec.ny.gov  

Join us for this summer’s Living Environment Institute (LEI), as we explore Marvelous Migrations on land, water and air. Migration is a relevant topic for educators everywhere. It is an exciting topic to learn about for students and teachers alike. For three days, LEI participants will explore a wide variety of migrants, including where they live and where they go. We’ll even become field scientists as we spend a day participating in ongoing projects at Norrie Point Environmental Center on the Hudson River.   

LEI participants will bring home an understanding of the marvels of migration. Participants will gain valuable ideas, standards-based curriculum and activities, and connect with a network of peers. We’ll do this with the guidance of experts like nationally recognized Chris Bowser, recipient of US EPA’s Environmental Quality Award for his creation of the American Eel Project, as they share expert techniques for engaging students across disciplines and grade levels.

Five Rivers - Interactive Lecture: CREATING OUR NATIONAL IDENTITY

http://www.dec.ny.gov/education/1835.html

Interactive Lecture: CREATING OUR NATIONAL IDENTITY: WILDERNESS AND LOCAL ARTS

Enjoy an interactive lecture exploring why the Hudson Valley is credited as the birthplace of American culture and our national identity. European settlers in the northeast had very strong dislikes of nature and in particular, wilderness. Over time, those views changed and became seen as the “…first product of value created by those otherwise culture-less Americans” and the basis for our “pioneering spirit.”

NOTE: Organized groups (scouts, schools, hiking clubs, etc.) are welcome, but are asked to call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register.
