Community-based Environmental Education
Environmental stewardship is routinely ranked as a top education need whenever county leaders are asked to prioritize local issues. Citizens can apply an environmental stewardship perspective to every and all community development activities. ERC initiatives to strengthen citizen understanding, appreciation and skills include the biannual ENVIRONMENT catalog, the Community Environmental Assessment Fact Sheet Series, and the annual Growing Communities-Greening Communities Educational Teleconference Network and many other environmental management programs provided by ERC staff.
Cooperative Extension Supports Youth Environmental Stewardship (CESYES) - a national project that seeks to strengthen the abilities of Extension educators, 4-H county and state faculty, and professionals from other natural resources agencies to serve communities, youth leaders and youth.
