The goal of school environmental education programs is to create
the environmental citizens who will become the stewards of the environment
for today and for tomorrow. A successful environmental education
program incorporates learning activities aimed enhancing awareness,
embedding knowledge and directing appropriate action.
These are books, magazines and videos that can be used in the classroom.
These are links to sites that have an environmental education connection. Some are sites for professional organizations, some are sites with good background, some have interesting activities.
