“Three Days. Three States. One Experience.”
Formal and informal educators from NJ, PA, and DE are invited to attend our annual Delaware Estuary Teacher Workshops! This year, we will be holding three exciting sessions on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday: July 16, 17, & 18.
In addition to being a fun learning experience, these workshops have practical applications and curriculum connections to benefit your classroom and students. Join us as we make our way through the estuary exploring natural resources, diverse communities and unique, hands-on ways to engage students through ‘STEAM’.

Come take a cruise along the Maurice River and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the National Wild & Scenic Rivers Act. Learn about the river’s history, the rich ecological value of this South Jersey region, and see some wonderful wildlife – bald eagles guaranteed! After this morning adventure, cool down in the local library for lunch and an afternoon nature-based art class that will result in a take-home craft.
Check out our living shoreline installation at the Mispillion Harbor, which addresses the increased loss of tidal salt marshes in the Delaware Bay. Our science staff will lead this educational tour and discuss many other projects we have implemented throughout the Estuary. Afterwards, we’ll explore the DuPont Nature Center and settle in for an afternoon of adapting your lessons to the Next Generation Science Standards!
Take a tour with an expert from the Philadelphia Water Department to see some nationally recognized projects that address flooding and pollution! We will visits sites around the city that demonstrate a mix of engineering and natural systems. Afterwards, meet back at the Fairmount Water Works for lunch, a self-guided tour, and a lesson on how environmental professionals select sites and design the types of projects you saw during the morning tour.
