Illinois Aquatic Ecosystems
9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Join us for this two-day workshop that will focus on aquatic ecosystems in our state and the organisms that rely on them. We will discuss the life cycles of aquatic invertebrates, fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals and their roles in aquatic habitats. We will spend time outdoors sampling for organisms and conducting water quality testing. Our experiences will be used to show you how to support Next Generation Science Standards developed for middle school life science topics. Teachers of other grade levels are welcome to register and attend the workshop but may need to adapt the resources as appropriate. If you register for this workshop, please plan to attend both days. Professional Development Hours are available. This workshop is part of the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program from the IDNR.
