Tanya Oznowich from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) spoke about the Next Generation Science Standards and the collaborative work that her department has done with the New Jersey Department of Education (DOE) and the Alliance of New Jersey Environmental Educators (ANJEE).
School community members were encouraged to sign up to participate in future collaborations with Rally for the Navesink in the hopes of creating Professional Learning Communities (PLC) in their schools and beyond. The goal of the PLC would be to provide opportunities to regularly articulate with colleagues about Watershed Mindfulness lessons. Rally for the Navesink looks forward to working closely with educators in their endeavor to create the next generation of Navesink River stewards.
If you are connected with a school community in the Navesink Watershed and are interested in helping the Rally connect its message to your school, please contact Amanda Wheeler at Clean Ocean Action at firstname.lastname@example.org or 732-872-0111. Presentations can be found at CleanOceanAction.org. (See additional Navesink story on cover.)
