Youth Aquatic Resource Education (YARE)

On May 2 & 3, over 20 teachers, educators and students gathered at the Cornell 

Biological Field Station on Oneida Lake in Central NY for a joint workshop on 

Youth Aquatic Resource Education (YARE).  The workshop featured hands-on 

instruction and training for teaching youth about water quality monitoring, 

aquatic ecology and fishing.  These educational topics are fostered within the 

shared missions of the workshop's sponsoring organizations - the Izaak Walton 

League of America (IWLA), Project Watershed and the NY Chapter of the American 

Fisheries Society (NY AFS).   Read More
