The first teacher workshop to be supported through a new partnership between H2O and the Texas Stream Team will be held in July in Corpus Christi.
This one day hands-on instruction to be held outside in the Oso Bay watershed will cover water quality sampling, outreach resources for students, and analysis of watershed information. Data collected by students will be entered into a database for study and analysis.
Teachers will receive continuing education credits and certification as citizen water quality monitors.
