The RESTOR Project - Research for Students and Teachers about the Ormond Beach Wetland Restoration Project - will begin this year in October (exact date to be announced shortly). We are looking for a few more interested 6-8th grade science teachers to participate. Teachers serving primarily multicultural populations have first priority. The project is fully funded by the National Marine Sanctuary BWET Program and will include:
*Teacher workshops with classroom and field instruction by a variety of local experts about the Ormond Beach Wetland Restoration, watersheds and water quality
*Standards-based curricula from the California Coastal Commission and National Marine Sanctuary
*A classroom visit and water quality instruction by a Channelkeeper scientist
*A fully funded field trip to Ormond Beach with water quality monitoring and wetland restoration activities
*A fully funded field trip to Anacapa Island
This project is in partnership with Cathy Reznicek at the Ventura County Office of Education, Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, Santa Barbara Channelkeeper, Nature Conservancy and the Ormond Point Native Plant Nursery.
Interested teachers, please contact Valerie Borel, RESTOR Project Program Representative, as soon as possible: email: firstname.lastname@example.org, phone: 323-260-3851.
