DINGMANS FERRY, Pa. - The Pennsylvania Environmental Education Center in Pike County has received a $2,067 environmental education grant from the Environmental Protection Agency for two workshops to educate teachers and students on wetlands and watersheds.
Teachers and students who attend the workshops are trained in how to conduct similar workshops on water quality testing in their classrooms.
“This type of training program can only strengthen the environmental knowledge and commitment in a community as teachers and students pass on what they learn to other students,” said Bradley Campbell, regional administrator for EPA’s mid-Atlantic region
EPA’s education grant program is designed to stimulate grass-roots environmental education. This was one of six grants totaling more than $42,000 awarded in Pennsylvania. Nationally, EPA awarded more than $2.3 million in environmental education grants in 2000 to schools, civic groups and non-profit organizations.
