Blue Thumb Trainings
Other Upcoming Events:
We are a diverse group of water quality, water management, conservation and education professionals and we want to share our passion for Oklahoma’s water resources with you on July 13, 14, and 15!
This three-day workshop is designed for teachers and environmental educators who will participate in hands-on learning experiences that can easily be used in the classroom.
Participants will also learn about point and non-point source pollution, erosion, stream and lake ecology and programs the sponsoring organizations can bring to your school or education event.
Some of the activities are outside and on the water so come prepared. An email with instructions on what to bring and wear will be sent out two weeks prior to the event.
