UNCP is hosting this free Aquatic Wild workshop taught by the NC Wildlife Resources Commission. Oxendine Science Bldg., Ecology Lab, Room 1111 (bldg. 1403 on campus map)

The Aquatic WILD program is for formal and non-formal educators interested in teaching young people about aquatic wildlife and ecology. Aquatic WILD materials build upon developments in wildlife conservation needs as well as advances in instructional methodology in Pre-K through 12th grade education.

We will be doing macroinvertebrate sampling at the Lumber River Nature Conservancy. We will carpool over there. Please bring water, insect repellant, a hat, sunscreen, wear long pants and closed toed shoes that can get wet or muddy. Feel free to bring a change of attire for the afternoon.
