Schools for Environmental Change: Improving and Adapting to Climate Change
MINA’s “Schools for Environmental Change” asks for participation of 1 volunteer teachers/advisors from each high school (who will guide the students involved) and student council officers of each high school (such as STUCO) or officers from your current environmental club. If the high school does not have a student council or environmental club or they are unable to participate, 3-4 students who are interested in the workshop may join as representatives.
If your High School is interested in participating in this event, please complete the following application: Click HERE to download it.

We encourage all High Schools on Saipan to participate in this upcoming workshop!
Teacher Camp 2010-2011, A Ridge-to-Reef Approach
MINA opened up another professional development workshop for teachers from both private and public schools of all levels. A total of 20 teachers signed up for MINA's Teacher Camp workshop to learn more about the environmental issues facing the CNMI. John Starmer of the Pacific Marine Resources Institute (PMRI) presented on "TURTLES" followed by a marine debris presentation by MINA Executive Director, Sam Sablan.
Teacher Camp coordinator Brooke Nevitt of CRM and Jon Igitol of MINA organized the event in November 2010 with short discussions, presentations, and field trips to Saipan's wetland, watershed communities, and marine protected areas. Rachel Zuercher of CRM and Lisa Hyun-Eller also assisted in the Teacher Camp. MINA is sincerely grateful to our volunteers - Brooke Nevitt, Rachel Zuercher, and Lisa-Hyun-Eller for their commitment in raising awareness about our environment and to the 2010-2011 Teacher Camp participants for their interest in MINA's Environmental Teacher Camp.
