GIS for Conservation

Open to: 6–12 Grade Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: During this two-day hybrid session, participants will do the following: 

  • Explore the history of conservation in New York City, the role of the Museum, and efforts happening today; and
  • Explore how conservation in New York City developed, where it is going, and how school communities can be a part of the story.

Day 1 will take place online and model strategies for working with spatial data and organizing a field study of a location. We will also explore digital tools like GIS to engage our school communities in conservation.
