posted in: Chesapeake Bay News | 0

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is seeking interested adults to become TEAM (Teaching Environmental Awareness in Maryland) volunteers. “Our volunteers’ mission is to educate students about the Chesapeake Bay and other Maryland environmental issues,” said TEAM DNR Coordinator Amy Henry.

Since its inception in 1998, TEAM DNR volunteers have delivered 1,000 classroom programs to more than 30,000 students in Maryland.

Volunteers should have an out-going personality and a strong desire to protect the Chesapeake Bay. No prior teaching experience is necessary. Currently, TEAM offers schools free classroom programs on the following topics:

  • Chesapeake Bay Watershed
  • Streams
  • Oyster Reefs
  • Horseshoe Crabs
  • Chesapeake Watermen

The next workshop will be held as follows:

  • Friday, February 19, 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
  • Friday, February 26, 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
  • Friday, March 5, 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

All workshops will be held in the lobby conference room of the Tawes State Office Building, 580 Taylor Avenue, Annapolis, Maryland.

Participants are asked to bring their own lunch. Beverages and snacks will be provided.

To register for a workshop, contact Amy Henry at 410.260.8828 or ahenry@dnr.state.md.us. For more information about TEAM DNR, visit www.dnr.maryland.gov/education/teamdnr.
