Groundwater Model Workshops: Application & Resources

About the Workshops:

Groundwater is an important resource, as it supplies drinking water to the majority of Wisconsin citizens. Help your students visualize the movement of groundwater and pollutants through underground materials by attending this FREE 1-day workshop. This is a great way to guide student learning and meet NGSS standards!

Workshop Date/Format

Check back for details about the 2022 Groundwater Model Workshop application process.

The training is provided by staff from the Wisconsin DNR, the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey and the UW-Stevens Point Center for Watershed Science and Education. Funding for the groundwater workshops comes from a wellhead protection "setaside" grant given to the DNR by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
