Through application of The Ecology School’s pedagogy and teaching techniques developed through 20+ years of award-winning outdoor science lessons, teachers will be challenged to explore water’s connection to human systems and its impacts on the environment. Immersed in field-based ecology lessons, teachers will have opportunities to network and collaborate with colleagues from schools around the country to reimagine their teaching to include outdoor learning, place-based experiences, and community partners

The Teacher Institute for Watershed Science and Conservation sponsored by Poland Spring will be offered from Saturday July 31- Tuesday August 3 and Thursday August 5-August 8.

Teachers who are accepted into the Institute will attend free of charge, thanks to our sponsor Poland Spring. An initial $250 stipend will be awarded upon arrival to the Institute, a second $250 upon implementation of a community-based project after the Institute, and participation in ongoing project evaluation. Travel stipends and additional scholarships to supplement childcare costs, lost summer income, etc. are available based on need.
