Fourteen Silver Lake College student-teachers took part in the 59th Environmental Education Workshop on campus, June 28-30. The workshop is a Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction requirement for their licensure.

Workshop topics included water, soil and forest ecology studies. Participants also engaged in watershed measuring activities as part of the Wisconsin DNR’s Project WILD, which assists preK-12 educators in teaching about wildlife and their habitat. 

Silver Lake College co-sponsors this workshop with Conservation Education Inc. of Manitowoc County.

SLC faculty members assisting with the workshop included: Michaeleen Golay, Coordinator of the Workshop and presenter of the Forestry section; Sister Lorita Gaffney, President of CEI; and Sister Jan Villemure, treasurer.

 Local presenters from Soil and Water Conservation and the Sea Grant Foundation also were involved.
