Massachusetts Envirothon Spring Workshop for Coaches and Teams
April 8, 2017
Alden Research Laboratory, Holden, MA
Agenda and Registration
Have you ever considered forming an Envirothon team? The Mass Envirothon Spring Workshop is an opportunity to get a look at the program and test whether it might be a good fit for you and your students. Prospective coaches are welcome to come alone or bring students. Workshop participants will be able to sample such hands-on learning opportunities as collecting macro-invertebrates in a stream, a wildlife habitat assessment hike, analyzing soils in a soil pit, and identifying and measuring trees. They will also get a chance to hear stories of how teams get started on community research for the Current Issue (this year’s topic: Agricultural Soil and Water Conservation). Workshop sessions and lunchtime offer opportunities to meet natural resource professionals and experienced coaches. The afternoon will consist of a mini-Envirothon, with teams visiting stations and answering sample test questions as practice for the competition in May.
