The field and practice of environmental education refers to both formal and non-formal efforts to teach about how natural environments function, how human behaviors shape and influence those natural functions, and how we can change our behaviors in order to sustain a healthy environment for the future of all living things.

You’ll help students explore environmental issues, engage in problem solving, and take action to improve the environment.
