FREE ONLINE WORKSHOP!
The Mālama Learning Center would like to invite you to join us for the Snails and Rat Lungworm in Hawaiʻi Teacher PD on Wednesday June 24, 2020. Learn all about Snail and Rat Lungworm from the comfort of your home. Grades 6-12 teachers are encouraged to attend this workshop to gain first-hand knowledge from Bishop Museum’s Malacologists performing the most extensive research on snails in the Pacific. Researchers will introduce teachers to lessons that will connect students to local issues surrounding invasive species and Rat Lungworm. You will also get to hear from several high school interns and learn about some of the things they were able to do as a part of their snail survey internship experience.
Through this course, you will learn the following: How to identify native and invasive snails in Hawaiʻi, how to manage pest species in your school's gardens, ways to survey for snails on your school's campus and all about Rat Lungworm such as the life cycle, symptoms of Rat Lungworm Disease and ways to prevent it.
