Description

Educators Seasons and Cycles in the Coastal and Aquatic Environment: Impacts of Climate Change 

Coastal and freshwater environments are home to highly biodiverse ecosystems, providing essential resources for all living things, including humans. As environmental stressors associated with climate change compound, they begin to have larger and larger effects on these systems. Come explore the local impacts of climate change on coastal and aquatic environments as you explore a variety of field sites, interact with naturalists, ecologists and research scientists, learn field data collection techniques, and evaluate long-term climate data. Experience and develop inquiry-based, standardsaligned investigations to bring these concepts into the classroom.
