Harvard Education Letter just published a piece entitled, "The Greening of Environmental Education". (http://www.hepg.org/hel/article/487) It is a great piece and well worth the read, if for no other reasons than to inspire yourself and back your own project wish list with sound reasoning. However, we don't all have the leniency, support, or resources to have such programs in our schools. I'm curious: What can a teacher do to incorporate environmental education into the daily, weekly, monthly routine? Are administrators/parents in your areas supportive of including more science inquiry related to the environment? Is there a perception of environmental education being "hippy tree hugging"? If so, what can we do to rebrand it?
