From the organizers:
Registration for Summer Workshops Open!
Join us as we travel down rivers through time to encounter the rich human history and natural wonders that have defined Alabama. Along the way, we will celebrate an array of magnificent rivers filled with unique plants and animals, shaped over the ages by a remarkably diverse geology. Accept the challenge to restore and protect our rivers for their economic, cultural, and ecological benefits, but most of all because it is the right thing to do.

The Alabama Bicentennial Commission is supporting the development of An Educator’s Guide to Alabama Rivers Curriculum and a series of educator workshops. The curriculum will assist educators to impart Alabama Rivers related knowledge, inspiration, and challenges to young students throughout the state. It is correlated to the AL Course of Study Standards for Social Studies and Science for grades 4-7, but is also adaptable for upper grades.
Those who complete the training will be prepared to use the curriculum with their own students and will have the option of becoming facilitators who can share it with other educators within their organization.
Workshops are 1-2 days in length depending on location. See the Registration Page for agenda details for each workshop.
Participants who complete an Alabama Rivers Educator Workshop will receive:
Registration Fee: $35
- Certification as an Alabama Rivers Educator
- Copy of the Alabama Rivers, A Celebration and Challenge by Dr. Bill Deutsch
- Copy of An Educator’s Guide to Alabama Rivers
- Access to online digital resources
- Continuing Education Units from Auburn University
- Some food and lodging during workshop
