Water Workshop for Educators a Great Success!

Twenty teachers, mostly from Watsonville, attended the very successful Water Education Workshop for Teachers on Saturday, February 23.

The City’s own Tami Stolzenthaler co-presented at the workshop held at the Wetlands Education Resource Center at Pajaro Valley High School. The workshop trained teachers in the most comprehensive water curriculum from Project WET, California EEI (California Environmental Education Initiative Curriculum), Our Water Works in Santa Cruz County, and Watershed Cruzin’. The Workshop was sponsored and presented by the City of Watsonville Public Works, the CREEC Network, Soquel Creek Water District, the Resource Conservation District of Santa Cruz County, and Watsonville Wetlands Watch.

Even with the challenge to enroll teachers in this day and age of school testing and performance pressure,  20 teachers attended the workshop.  The teachers in attendance definitely went away with the latest facts on local water!
