This page links to a number of environmental education resources for kids and teachers. It features activities designed to engage and empower children aged 14 and under with the knowledge that they can make a difference. The goal of these projects is to create genuine interest and awareness of pollution prevention concepts.
Children should not be burdened with the responsibility of saving the world. But their imaginations can be sparked with the many opportunities they and their families have to protect and improve their environment through choices they make in their daily lives.
