EVENT TRAINING WORKSHOPS: Event training workshops cover hands on exploration of all the sampling parameters and data collection techiniques for running the event at your site. The workshops focus on how to maximize student learning while engaging the students in field sampling, strengthening participants' understanding of the various tests and successful sampling techinques, and improving accuracy in data collection. We encourage you to attend one of these events as we use them for sharing ideas, dispensing supplies and networking with other Hudson River educators and enthusiasts. We scheduled several workshops in August and September in different salinity regimes and settings. To sign up for the workshops please complete and return this year's registration form either (online) (word) (pdf ) OR contact Rebecca Houser or Margie Turrin.
