why is environmental education important?

Nature walks! Bugs! Water! Science! And animals! We can all learn more about the environment!

Environmental education allows individuals to explore environmental issues, engage in environmental problem solving, learn about the natural world they live in, and make informed conclusions about their effects have on our environment. As a result, a deeper understanding of environmental issues is developed and skills are formed in order to make informed and responsible decisions. Not to mention the fun environmental education provides students!

Adults and children alike benefit from getting to learn about their surroundings!

The Cambria County Conservation District offers a variety of environmental education options:

  • Education programs (custom or pre-designed)

  • Poster contests

  • Envirothon competitions

  • Workshops
