  • 2017-2018 Bridging the Watershed Training

    Bridging the Watershed (BTW) is an outreach program of the Alice Ferguson Foundation, in partnership with the National Park Service (NPS) and area schools, designed to promote student academic achievement, personal connections with the natural world, lifelong civic engagement, and environmental stewardship through hands-on curriculum- based outdoor studies in national parks and public lands.

    The Alice Ferguson Foundation has a partnership with Prince George's County Public Schools. The William S. Schmidt Center is the liaison that provides assistance with scheduling field studies for students and professional development for teachers. The field studies are designed for middle and high school students. Introductory trainings are de- signed for PGCPS teachers unfamiliar with BTW and NPS and have not done a BTW field study. The focus will be on the mechanics of the program and familiarization of the parks. Teachers must attend or have attended a training to be able to schedule a field study. Transportation funds are available for field studies.

    Training Dates for 2017-2018

    Dates for BTW 201 are coming soon...
