The University of New Orleans Pontchartrain Institute for Environmental Sciences has received a donation of $90,800 from the Environmental Protection Agency.
“The funds from the EPA grant are valuable particularly for creating the incentives for carrying the workshop components forward into the classroom and to provide field-based inquiry science opportunities for the students of the participating teachers,”
This donation will be used to provide watershed education.
“I am thrilled to be working with the group of talented and creative education leaders,” Dinah Maygarden, director of coastal education, said. “Each professional development workshop of this kind helps to build connections among a network of amazing teachers who can bring the ideas, concepts and skills learned about our amazing river and its delta to their students. This network grows into something pretty amazing as we continue to connect and reconnect over the years.”
