Learn to engage grade 2-16 students in fascinating crayfish studies in this hands-on STEAM workshop. Rick Reynolds, veteran educator and author of Investigating Crayfish + Freshwater Ecosystems, will team up with other partners from The River Mile Network to step you through student activities including scientific investigations in your local watershed. Gain confidence to participate with The River Mile’s Crayfish Study to support important research by scientists and wildlife managers. 

Learn how different tools can be used to monitor native and invasive crayfish, assess water quality, and collect, analyze, and share data and student observations to benefit people and wildlife. Meet NGSS and CCSS while integrating the arts and all content areas.
