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.

Location  Five Rivers Environmental Education Center, 56 Game Farm Road Delmar, NY 12054 - Map

Take part in ongoing research on monarch butterflies. For more than 15 years, data collected at Five Rivers has been contributed to this continent-wide citizen science project conducted through the University of Minnesota. The goal of the MLMP is to better understand how and why monarch populations vary, with a focus on their distribution and abundance during the breeding season in North America. Volunteers in the United States, Canada and Mexico aid in conserving monarchs and advance understanding of butterfly ecology and migration in general. Meet at the Nature’s Accessible Backyard Trail kiosk, at the south end of our parking lot. Go to www.mlmp.org to learn about the project.
