Dear Dr. Perry,

I am writing as co-chairman for the Environmental Education Committee of the Clinch
River Strategy with the University of Virginia’s Institute for Environmental Negotiation.

We are in the process of creating an environmental symposium for educators within the
Clinch River watershed on August 7, 2012. This symposium is anticipated to be located
at the Oxbow Center in St. Paul, Virginia with transportation provided to outdoor stations
along the Clinch River and the Estonoa Wetlands Project. It will be a daylong event
comprised of experiential learning techniques that can be used in the classroom as well as
motivational speakers to discuss the ecosystems of the watershed. The purpose of this
symposium is to help educators gain hands-on learning techniques that will help
supplement the science, math and English SOL’s while teaching about the diversity of the
Clinch River area.

We are reaching out to the Wise County Public Schools to determine the amount of
interest there would be among educators. Educators will not only gain new teaching
strategies but the symposium can be used as an in-service day to help meet re-
certification requirements. Please respond with a close approximation of the number of
teachers that would be attending this symposium by February 27, 2012.

Should you have any questions or need additional information, I can be reached at
276.393.5077 or via e-mail: All of us associated with the Clinch River
Strategy look forward to working with you and teachers of Wise County on this exciting
educational program.
