Watershed Moments Community Learning Series 2016-2017
Learning doesn’t stop when you leave school or exit the workforce; learning lasts a lifetime. It’s with that belief in mind that the Appalachian Lab created the Watershed Moments Community Learning Series.
Learn about the land, sea, and air around us from regionally and nationally known experts and artists. By taking a multidisciplinary approach to the series, the AL offers adult learners the opportunity to engage their right and left brains as they learn more about the pressing environmental issues of our day, from endangered species to climate change, from water pollutants to improvements in air quality. These events are free and open to the public.
Our spring 2017 schedule of events has not yet been finalized. Please see below for a tentative schedule of events.
Spring 2017 Schedule
February 16, 2017: Lynne Cherry
On Thursday, February 16, 2017, at 6:30pm at the Appalachian Laboratory in Frostburg, MD, award-winning Lynne Cherry, public television filmmaker and author of over thirty children’s books, will present and discuss remarkable success stories of how youth learn through their own solution-oriented actions within their communities. The presentation will include a screening of a film from the Young Voices for the Planet series. This family-friendly event will be of interest to students, scientists, science communicators, educators, teens, pre-teens, and upper elementary age children. The event is free and open to the public with limited seating available.
