Environmental Protection In the Caribbean (EPIC) will be offering free educational presentations for schools, clubs, and civic groups during October and November 2009 as part of the Love the Lagoon program.
The theme of these presentations will be the importance of wetlands, such as the Simpson Bay Lagoon and salt ponds, and their role in our environment and society.
Visiting environmental education specialist Andrea Beauchamp will provide hands-on, interactive learning experiences for audiences of all ages. In addition to her current tenure as a middle school teacher in the United States, Mrs. Beauchamp teaches at a residential summer science center for gifted and talented students as well as conducting summer school science lessons for at-risk youth. Her extensive experience both in and out of the classroom setting will be of great benefit to all participants.
Classroom presentations may be augmented by field trips to nearby wetlands. To schedule presentations, phone Love the Lagoon Project Manager Rueben Thompson at 545-3009.
