Environmental education is about the physical, biological, natural and cultural world around us. Environmental education fosters awareness of how important it is to conserve our shared natural resources. Conservation has become extremely important to Berks County especially in light of such environmental concerns as urban sprawl, farmland development, water quality, erosion and sediment control, and other land-use issues. The Academic Standards for Environment and Ecology focus on a wide range of topics including “Watersheds and Wetlands,” and “Humans and the Environment.” Environmental education is all about what we breathe, eat, and drink. Without knowledge of our environment, there would be no life. Natural resources conservation has become extremely important in Berks County especially in light of the recession and hard economic times. This course will be held onsite at the Berks County Heritage Center (1102 Red Bridge Rd, Reading, PA 19605).
