Teachers will earn 1.5 USBE credits for attending the field trips, receive a toolkit full of supplies and resources for the classroom, and have the opportunity to be certified as a Watershed Master Naturalist. (Opportunity for Continuing Education Credit through USU also available.) We will be offering the next section of the Master Naturalist program in the summer (Mountains). Preference for the mountain workshop in the summer will be given to those who attended the first workshop that was held in the fall.

Due to the nature of the Watershed Exploration course, we will be walking and hiking over uneven, often rocky/sandy, and wet terrain in unpredictable weather. Participants should be comfortable hiking at least 1-2 miles in a single day. While we do our best to accommodate people of all abilities, attendees will need to be comfortable with these accomodations.
If you have questions or concerns about the activities required please contact Bonnie Jean Knighton.
