Attention Educators: Save the Date for ANJEE!

On January 6-8, 2005, the Alliance for NJ Environmental Education (ANJEE) will hold their annual conference at Rider University.  This year’s theme is “Diversity: The Nature of New Jersey.”  For more information or to register, visit  COA’s Tony Totah and Julie Hajdusek, will be presenting workshops to attendees.  Tony’s workshop will focus on the Beach Sweeps and the ways that teachers can incorporate our 10 years of Sweeps data into lessons for students.  Julie’s workshop will illustrate how using a program focused around an outdoor environment (such as the Student Summit) can facilitate an experiential learning experience.

ICE Offers Cool Education Workshop Series

Wildwood enrolled some of their Middle School students in an after-school environmental workshop series offered by the Institute of Coastal Education (ICE).  This series of 18 hands-on programs during the fall semester covers a wide range of topics: water resources, artificial habitats, water quality & testing, marine pollution, invertebrates, shells of the Jersey shore, careers in the environment, plankton lab, whales, biology of fishes, nature in art, future of the oceans, and habitat exploration.  The underlying theme of the program is biodiversity and human impact on the environment.  Students conduct experiments, make observations, take measurements, and identify and classify marine life.  If your south Jersey school is interested in participating in a similar program series in the Spring or Summer of 2005, contact Tony Totah.
