AUTHORS: Angela Capello, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries

ABSTRACT: WETSHOP (Wetland Education Teacher workshop), sponsored by LA Dept. Wildlife & Fisheries, is a coastal awareness workshop for teachers which provides an in-depth look at issues related to wetland ecology and coastal land loss in Louisiana. During this week-long wetlands institute, teachers spend a portion of each day in the field learning about maritime forests, barrier island beach ecology, coastal restoration, ornithology, coastal botany and the role of oil and gas in Louisiana. Pre-test and post-test data indicate an increase in scientific content knowledge. WETSHOP is a stewardship project which encourages WETSHOP graduates to implement wetland projects with their students, other teachers and their community.
