2018 Workshop Locations and Dates:

We will offer one Exploring Our Living Streams Stream Biomonitoring and Water Chemistry Monitoring Workshop and two new educator workshop opportunities in 2018. Check back here or contact the AWW Program for additional information on registration.

4-H AWW Watershed Stewardship 101 Workshop, Auburn, AL // May 9

For adult educators including teachers, volunteers, and informal educators who would like to learn how to teach students about basic watershed concepts, the water environment, and water pollution through hands-on activities. Participants do not need any previous experience with water monitoring to participate. The workshop does not cover water monitoring techniques and will not result in certification. Participants will learn more about how to get involved with AWW and 4-H AWW.

4-H AWW Field Day for Certified Educators, Auburn, AL // May 10

To participate in this workshop you must have previously completed an AWW Exploring Our Living Streams Workshop in the past. If you are unsure if you have participated in an EOLS workshop, contact the AWW Office for verification.

Exploring Our Living Streams – Cahaba Environmental Center, Montevallo, AL // July 13-15

The Exploring Our Living Streams Curriculum provides hands-on activities for teaching students about watershed science and water monitoring. The 4-H AWW Program provides support to clubs and classrooms as they use the curriculum and collect water data. Click here to learn more about the curriculum.

During the 2 day EOLS workshop, participants are certified as water monitors (water chemistry and stream biomonitoring) and  learn how their students can be certified as 4-H AWW Water Monitors.

Participants who complete an EOLS workshop will receive:

  • Certification as AWW Water Monitors
  • A copy of the EOLS curriculum
  • Access to EOLS Digital Resources (presentations and other support materials)
  • A DVD of Discovering Alabama videos that are correlated to the curriculum
  • Access to monitoring equipment
  • Support with implementation of the EOLS curriculum, including certification of students as 4-H AWW Monitors
  • CEUs from Auburn University
  • Food and lodging during the workshop
  • Additional programming specific to the host environmental center (including activities such as farm tours, boat rides, and fun hikes!)
