Nature Up North visits St. Lawrence - Lewis BOCES Tech Camp!

The Nature Up North team was delighted to be able to present at the annual Tech Camp presented by the Model Schools team. Our goal was to provide an overview of the resources we have at Nature Up North to support environmental learning in K-12 classrooms.  We featured two of our citizen science projects, Monitor My Maple and North Country Wild, and also looked over a variety of other resources available to teachers. A handout from the presentation is available and you can also view the powerpoint presentation here.

I can't wait to take what I learned from Nature Up North and implement is in my SLL BOCES classroom! I would love for the Nature Up North team to come to my classroom and help us launch a citizen science project!
