Project Title & Description
Environmental Education - Experiential Agroecology
Students in grades 3-6 in rural Plumas County will engage in summer school and school-year education on the environmental impacts of different methods of agriculture, including soil erosion, water pollution and greenhouse gas emissions; and sustainable agriculture methods to reduce and reverse these impacts. Through a program of lectures, guest speakers, field trips and hands-on activities, students and teachers will learn about the interconnectedness of agricultural and environmental systems, while also learning practical planting skills and awareness of environmental careers.
