The Allen County Partnership for Water Quality (ACPWQ) is hosting another Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) certification workshop. This workshop is designed to train educators of all sorts in the use of the 60+ activities contained within the new Project WET activity manual.

This is the second generation of the Project WET manual and has many new activities and features with many of them meeting ISTEP teaching standards. It is a fun and informative way to educate your students, staff or anyone on one of the most vital resources on the planet-water.

“Our community is currently undergoing a riverfront study. If we want to have a healthy, vibrant experience based on our rivers then we should know our impact...” Matt Jones, Water Resource Educator and Project WET Facilitator, states that; “…We live in the Lake and Rivers Area of Indiana. As river stakeholders, it is through education that we can make better decisions about how to use them.”

The workshop will be held from 9am to 3pm on Friday, Sept. 27th. There is no charge for this workshop but pre-registration is necessary. To register, please contact the Allen County Partnership for Water Quality office at: or by dialing 260/484-5848 x 111. The workshop will be held at the ACPWQ office at 3718 New Vision Dr., Ft. Wayne, IN 46845. Space is limited. Deadline for registration is Monday, Sept.23rd.

Project WET is part of the programming of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and is paid for through the Division of Fish and Wildlife Sportsman’s Fund.
