watershed teachers 2022

Aug. 18, 2022-- Last week, Aug. 12, a variety of environmentally-passionate, conscience teachers from the local areas including Toms River, Brick, and Manalapan participated in full-day Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) workshops to learn more about how to protect and restore our water sources and how to help tackle climate change.

The workshops were held at Save Barnegat Bay's EcoCenter in Toms River and co-hosted by The Watershed Institute, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Veolia. The Watershed Institute's Pat Heaney, senior educator, conducted the workshops with highly-recognized science teachers in order that they can bring a deeper understanding of the importance of our environment to their students.

Among the teachers representing Toms River Regional Schools was High School North history teacher Paul Stenzel (top left), who enhanced his knowledge of climate and water resources, information he's anxious to share with his students this school year and beyond.
