Wetland Round - Up Field Trip School Volunteer and Teacher Workshop - Spring 2019

Wetland Round Up Field Trip Workshop for Teachers and Parent Volunteers in NORTH SAN JOSE (ALVISO): We are delighted you will be participating in the Wetland Round-Up field trip program at the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Environmental Education Center, located in North San Jose (Alviso), California.  After this workshop you will be able to: - Describe the 5 habitats on the Refuge - Identify 2 endangered species that reside on the Refuge - Lead a small group, hands-on activity on your school’s Wetland Round-Up field trip using a   simple script in a “Do, Read, Ask” format that we provide (see your teacher for more details) - Plan your school’s Wetland Round-Up field trip (teachers)  We will spend a good portion of the workshop outdoors, rain or shine, exploring the Refuge habitats.  It can get WINDY, cold, and muddy.  Please come prepared with the following recommended clothing: -          field clothes (clothes you don’t mind getting dirty) -          comfortable walking shoes (shoes you don’t mind getting dirty) -          a warm, water-repellent outer layer (windbreaker, jacket, etc.) Please arrive promptly and plan to stay for the entire program (2 hours).

Note that we spend a good portion of the workshops outdoors, rain or shine, exploring the Refuge habitats, so make sure to wear several layers of clothing and appropriate footwear. Returning and New Teachers Attending a Field Trip Training is a requirement of participating in our dynamic educator-led field trip program. Classroom teachers that have not yet attended field trip training MUST attend a Field Trip Workshop. If you are a group of returning teachers you must send 1 representative to a workshop this fall. We strongly encourage teachers to attend the workshop with their parent volunteers. School Volunteers (Parents) We also request, and strongly recommend, that School Volunteers that will be leading an activity attend a workshop.  The School Volunteers will assume the role of Activity Leaders who will teach your students on the day of the field trip.
Their attendance at an orientation workshop will greatly improve the quality of your students’ experience.  For Questions, Please Contact: Monday through Friday, 9:00 A.M. - 4:00 P.M. Phone: (408) 262-5513 ext.100 (Genie) ext 105 (Sarah) Email: genie_moore@fws.gov or sarah_freeman@fws.gov.
