Bosque Education Guide Workshop

The Bosque Education Guide Workshop

Friday, March 15, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. - 4: 30 p.m. [at the Rio Grande Nature Center]
The Bosque Education Guide is an interdisciplinary curriculum about the Middle Rio Grande Valley ecosystem. The curriculum provides classroom-based and field activities for students grades K-12. For the central activity, students construct a model of the Middle Rio Grande and then manipulate the paper and cloth pieces to demonstrate human impacts over the last two hundred years. Later, they "restore" the ecosystem.
