Webinar: Phosphorus in Soil and Water: Important Concepts and Emerging Questions

Tuesday, February 12, 2019 - 10:30am to 11:30am
Presenter:         Dr. Eric Roy, University of Vermont Access link:      https://zoom.us/j/309837430 Update your understanding of how phosphorus interacts with soil, water, and the various best management practices being employed today.  We’ll begin with a look at the chemistry of phosphorus and how it changes based on surrounding physical and biological conditions.  For example, what’s the difference between total, dissolved and particulate phosphorus, and why does this matter?  How do soil characteristics affect the storage, leaching and movement of this nutrient in the watershed?  What about compost and the role of healthy soil? We’ll then explore broader topics like a region’s phosphorus budget over the long term.  How can we better store imported phosphorus, and what questions do we have about the long-term effectiveness of various strategies we rely upon?  What are the prospects for exporting phosphorus?  Come with questions for a Q&A session at the end of Dr. Roy’s presentation.

Watershed for Every Classroom

Saturday, April 6, 2019 (All day)
Watershed for Every Classroom is a year-long, supported professional development program for educators who teach in the Lake Champlain Basin. The stories of the Basin offer multiple ways to teach all subjects; engage students in learning in their community; and provide a way to integrate content, service, and a sense of belonging to one’s home place. We will explore how people, places, and things tell the stories of the Lake Champlain Basin and offer our students the opportunity to demonstrate an in-depth understanding of content, community engagement, and sense of place.
