Barton Springs University is pleased to sponsor a “Lunch and Learn” for AP environmental science and aquatic science teachers.
These freshly-minted lessons utilize the content from the Barton Creek Time Stream project (2022), an interactive digital scrapbook documenting 50+ years of preservation efforts on Barton Creek. The project was created by Karen Kocher, creator of Living Springs and Monica Flores, an independent media producer.
The 90-minute session will take place at Austin High on Saturday, January 21st. Lunch will be served, and a letter will be available if you need credit for service hours.
Please fill out our brief survey. Attendance is limited to 25 participants. First come, first served. If you can’t attend, please do fill out our survey, and we will find a way to connect you with the curriculum.
