ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION & COMMUNITY OUTREACH
We believe that environmental education is an essential part of connecting people to the natural world. Our goals are to facilitate learning that is interactive and provide information that equips people with practical ways to engage in our community and care for the world around us.
As part of our commitment to educating people about issues connected to environmental stewardship, we conduct interactive activities and presentations at no charge to schools and community groups on topics such as (but not limited to) the following:
Green Heroes - Learning from Nature’s Recyclers (waste reduction, composting, recycling, and litter prevention)
Green Heroes - Daily Environmental Stewardship
Water Pollution Prevention (stormwater management and water quality)
Waste assessment and recycling planning for schools/community organizations
Emerald Ash Borer Beetle and other invasive pests
Our educational activities and presentations are designed to integrate with an organization/teacher’s current curriculum or introduce a new topic. All our presentations are aligned to Nebraska Academic Content Standards. They are adapted to the age of the group and can be tailored to various subjects such as art, literature, math, and the social or physical sciences.
