Teachers Invited to Workshop on Acid Mine Drainage in PA

Middle and high school teachers are invited to a three-day program to learn about the issues, causes and effects of abandoned mine drainage in Pennsylvania at the Jennings Environmental Education Center in Slippery Rock, Pa on March 29, April 12 and May 17.

The workshop, which meets the state Environment and Ecology Standards, introduces the topics of the history of coal mining, technologies currently used to treat acid mine drainage at the local, state and national level.

Teachers participating in this course will be given the tools to bring this topic into the classroom through handouts, activities, discussion and field trips that include the Tour Ed mine, an active limestone quarry and reclamation sites.

There is a $130 registration fee, but participants will be given a stipend of $80, along with books, materials and Act 48 credits.

The workshop is funded by the Department of Environmental Protection Environmental Education Grants Program.
