You may recall our Environmental Education Week Guest Blogger series this past March/April, during which we featured three educators engaging their students in environmental field work and inquiry: Tasha Kiemel of Sammamish, WA told us about a 4th grade wetlands restoration project; Dave Wood of Washington, DC chronicled an 8th grade investigation into local water resources; and Debra Weitzel of Middleton, WI shared details of high schoolers’ participation in a citizen science water testing initiative.
Do YOU have a positive story of how you and your students are bringing environmental education to students? EE Week would like to hear about it! Enter the 2009 Photo Blog Contest and upload your photos and stories on the EE Week Blog.
The contest has two parts: submit a photo of an environmental education
