The four national estuarine research reserves in New England will work together to share existing and develop new educational resources for the classroom teachers they work with.

New Curriculum: The Waquoit Bay Reserve recently developed a curriculum about blue carbon, "Bringing Wetlands to Market," which will be shared with the three other New England reserves (Wells, Great Bay, and Narragansett Bay). The reserves will use a similar process to develop localized teaching modules about climate change impacts.

Teacher Workshops: A three- or four-day intensive teacher workshop will be held at each participating reserve in the summer of 2016. Teachers will test out a suite of new educational resources about climate change and receive guidance on how to develop stewardship projects for their students.

Application by Other Reserves: Post-workshop evaluations and meetings will serve as opportunities to discern the successes and challenges associated with the trainings and new curriculum. Revised training and teaching materials will be presented and made available to the entire reserve system.

This science transfer project was funded by NOAA through the National Estuarine Research Reserve System Science Collaborative to promote the use of science. It did not produce any new data.


The National Estuarine Research Reserve System has a proven track record of successfully transferring and translating reserve science to a broad suite of educators through teacher workshops. In recent years, teachers have expressed a need for curriculum, data sets, and professional development related to climate change. This grant will enable the New England reserves to develop and offer a series of high-quality teacher workshops focused on the story of climate change impacts on coastal habitats, using a variety of data collected at the reserves. The delivery of new and existing curricula will arm over 50 teachers with the tools and confidence they need to effectively bring the discussion of climate change into the classroom.
