The conference is an invaluable professional development opportunity for any and all educators. Presentations and workshops will feature EE in elementary, secondary, higher and adult education, green school practices and model programs, natural history interpretation, community-based environmental projects, issue-based outreach and more. Plus, the 2-day conference is a lot of FUN! Early Bird registration rates are available through December 24. Registration closes January 15. For more info or to register online, CLICK HERE.

Groundwater in Fractured Bedrock
9 a,m, - 4:30 p.m. 
Trayes Hall - Douglass Campus Center
100 George St, New Brunswick, NJ 08901
This one-day course focuses on practical aspects of groundwater in the fractured sedimentary bedrock of the Newark Group (Brunswick Aquifer), where thousands of sites have been impacted by industrial contaminants. Remedial activities at such sites are usually impaired by oversimplified notions regarding groundwater flow and contaminant migration, as well as by the use of inadequate hydrogeologic characterization methods. The course is intended for geologists, hydrogeologists, environmental professionals, licensed site remediation professionals (LSRPs), remediation engineers, regulators, and corporate site managers responsible for the investigation and remediation of complex bedrock sites. Participants will have an opportunity to improve their understanding of the hydrogeologic framework best used to represent sedimentary bedrock sites. More information:
