iNaturalist: A Tool for Exploration and Citizen Science. The Field Edition!
August 7, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm
Spend the day exploring Merrill Creek Reservoir with like-minded educators!
Get out into the field with other educators who are excited to use iNaturalist! Workshops will be held around the forests, meadows and streams at the NJ School of Conservation and Merrill Creek Reservoir. Educators will learn valuable tips for taking students outdoors and will work together to complete team challenges. Sign up for just one or join us for both!
This workshop will be led by Tanya Sulikowski, former faculty member at the NJSOC who is currently the Environmental Specialist at Merrill Creek Reservoir and Evangelina Pena, Science Teacher at Gill St. Bernard.
Workshops are limited to 25 participants and current CDC recommendations will be followed during these events. Participants should bring a bagged lunch. All program fees support the NJ School of Conservation.
The Friends of the New Jersey School of Conservation is a U.S. tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. When NJSOC closed in July 2020, the Friends launched a campaign to save it. This ultimately led to negotiations with the NJ Department of Environmental Protection, owners of NJSOC, to obtain an interim management agreement for the School. This agreement was finalized in April 2021, and the Friends of NJSOC are proud to offer limited programming at NJSOC with the help of dedicated and talented volunteers. We are pleased to register you for one of our programs!
