Environmental education plays a crucial role in raising awareness and giving individuals the tools to be good stewards of their neighborhoods and communities. Our programs empower youth and adults to address, prevent, and solve environmental problems, be it through land & water quality protection programs, participation in water quality monitoring, creating pollinator-friendly habitats in their backyard, or adding environmentally ethical and sustainable practices to their daily lives.
