My Place in the Fingerlakes

February 8th is the LAST DAY to register for the 2nd Annual My Place in the Fingerlakes Conference that takes place in July.  The project utilizes the Finger Lakes environment (built, natural, urban, suburban, and rural) as part of the learning experience, and incorporates inquiry and first-hand experiences into curriculum modules following the NYS Math, Science, and Technology standards.  Teachers will receive a stipend and a $500.00 grant to take their students on a field trip to one of the Finger Lakes State Parks.  Contact Sheila Myers, Education Outreach Coordinator, at smyers@hws.edu for more information!

Keeping in mind our environmental theme for the week, what are other local natural resources that we can share with our students?
