Wild Weekend Workshop: Project Wet w/Sue Penney

About the Workshop:
Project WET Canada is a fun, hands-on, inquiry learning based, water education program for Kindergarten to Grade 12 students. It is designed for use by both formal and non-formal educators. This program is sponsored by the Canadian Water Resources Association https://cwra.org/en/affiliates-programs/project-wet/
The purpose of Project Wet activities is to help people learn how to think about water issues, not what to think. The Project Wet Activities offered at the HLC on Aug 24th from 11- 2 will be a taste of some of the fun activities this resource has to offer with lots of play and fun involved.

About the Facilitator
Sue Penney, former education coordinator for the Shubenacadie Provincial Wildlife Park, is a hands-on teacher with over 20 years’ experience, who explores field, forest and seaside on and off the job. The passion she shares with others brings an added dimension to her programs. With a background in Animal Science and an inquiring mind, many have explored nature with her as their companion. As a facilitator for Project Wet, a Canadian Water Resources Association program in Nova Scotia, Sue takes on the mission to help people learn how to think, not what to think, about water, wildlife and the environment.
