COLORADO BASIN TOUR for teachers: Forests to Faucets Workshops
brought to you by Project Learning Tree/Project WET
An educational tour of the Colorado River Basin organized by the Colorado Foundation for Water Education will take place on June 13-15, 2011. Together with 100 local experts, educators, elected officials and water professionals, we will visit the Colorado River headwaters and hike in Rocky Mountain National Park, key tributaries such as the Blue River, tour energy facilities, a working vineyard in Palisade and water supplies on Grand Mesa.
Teachers can get 1.5 credits for participating in the "Forests to Faucets" Project WET/ Project Learning Tree workshop activities along the way. Cost to teachers (who register in time): only $100, because the $400 total registration fee is being subsidized by donors, including the City of Grand Junction Water Department, the Mesa County Water Association and the Forests to Faucets program Colorado State Forest Service). Cost includes bus, lodging, meals and materials; to get the 1.5 credits is an additional $80. The tour is sold out, but we are holding a few places for teachers.
There are a limited number of scholarships available, so register as soon as possible by contacting Kristin Marharg at (303) 377-4433 or email@example.com
