Using Lakes And Creeks As A Classroom – Teacher Enrichment Workshop

Learn to use a creek (or lake) as an outdoor classroom. You will learn to find and identify aquatic invertebrates, measure flow, turbidity of the water and nitrogen levels.  Other activities include creating art and poetry as well as challenges that improve students’ observation skills. You will be releasing trout about two weeks later, so learning how to find and ID creek critters will be very timely.

You will get “knee deep” in the resource: dress appropriately. Workshop will be held rain or shine.

All participants will go home with

  • Pond and Stream Safari” (an $18.95 value)
  • invertebrate (trout food) ID charts
  • and some lucky teachers will go home with dip nets

This workshop is most appropriate for teachers of 4th grade and up (but all are welcome).

This scenic lake is near the junction of 980 and 13 in Oakland. It is one of our trout release sites.

Your instructional team includes:

  • Humberto  Abreu Bracho (Lawrence Hall of Science)
  • James Frank – East Bay Regional Park District
  • Bob Flasher and Ethan Rotman – CA Fish and Game

Saturday, February 23rd 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM
