Coastal Matters – Fisheries Project

Event info
Time: 12:00 am

Local resource topics such as sustainable fisheries can serve as a personal way of engaging students in learning and grounding them in relationships with place and community and important events such as the moratorium.  ACAP Humber Arm Invites you to join our next Coastal Matters presentation where we will hear from special guest speakers, Margaret McKeon, Education for Sustainability Resource Teacher and Outdoor Education Coordinator NL English School District: Western Region and Sonya Salyzyn, Grade 6 Teacher Humber Elementary.  Ms. McKeon and Salyzyn have titled their presentation Celebrating an Innovative Classroom Fisheries Project. An abstract for the talk can be found below.

This presentation will take place 12:30 to 1:30pm, Wednesday,  Feb 4th in room 301 of the Library and Computing Building, Grenfell Campus.  As with all Coastal Matters presentations this session is free of charge and open to the public.  Refreshments will be available.


This presentation will overview a co-developed fisheries and sustainable food project that has been ongoing in Humber Elementary grade six classrooms over the past four years, that last year included an art opening and public show at city hall, in addition to a variety of guest speakers, a grocery store seafood counter visit, and a fish plant and boat experience in Cox’s Cove.
