The two workshops planned for January 26 and 27 have been postponed until further notice. We’ll update you on the new dates as soon as we have them.
UINR and Environment Canada are presenting two free workshops at the Membertou Trade and Convention Centre on January 26 and 27.
The first workshop on Proposal Writing and Fundraising would be of interest to anyone who writes funding applications for both environmental and non-environmental projects. If you need money for a project and need to know more about what funders want from you, this workshop focuses on funding programs available from government and private sources. Through this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to prepare effective proposals to increase your chances of getting the funding you need, from cleaning a stream so salmon will return to increasing biodiversity by growing traditional plants. The workshop will clarify what you need to make your project happen, what your project will cost and what help you can reasonably expect to receive.
Proposal Writing and Fundraising will be held Wednesday, January 26 from 9:00–3:30 at Membertou Trade and Convention Centre. Lunch will be provided and mileage will be covered. There will be no accommodations or honourariums paid for this event.
Our second workshop is Project WET, an experiential environmental education program with a focus on water. It is of particular interest to all educators and anyone who works with youth or does outreach related to water resources. The activities are designed for students in P-12 but can be used for a wider audience. This one-day hands-on, interactive workshop will introduce participants to Project WET, and train them in its delivery. By the end of the day you will be able to use the educators’ guide to deliver water education activities to various audiences. Participants will receive a free educators’ guide.
Project Wet will be held Thursday, January 27 from 9:00–3:30 at Membertou Trade and Convention Centre. Lunch will be provided and mileage will be covered. There will be no accommodations or honourariums paid for this event.
