Ocean County Soil Conservation District announces its 23rd Annual Environmental Educators Roundtable, which will be held on Earth Day, April 22 from 3 to 8 p.m. The event takes place at the Lighthouse Center for Natural Resource Education in Waretown.

Our Roundtable theme this year is “Happy Earth Day for the Next Generation – Full STEAM Ahead!” The event will feature an array of STEAM-based activities and field experiences to motivate and inspire educators to incorporate environmental topics into their curricula. Informative and adventurous programs are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards. Explore the local Barnegat Bay watershed and network with environmental educators while gathering resources, ideas and lesson plans to take back to your classroom.

Doors open at 3 p.m. for an Open House that includes exhibitors and a light dinner. Workshops are offered from 4:30 to 6:45 p.m., followed by dessert and light refreshments. The keynote presentation by Xerces Society Senior Biologist, Kelly Gill, will run from 7 to 7:45 p.m.

Wrap-up, evaluations and professional development certificate distribution conclude the event.

The fee is $25.
