Earth Partnership for Schools
Earth Partnership Institutes
We invite teachers to participate in a one-week summer Earth Partnership Institute for graduate credit. You will learn how to use the process of ecological restoration as a broad environmental context for teaching and learning about your local natural and cultural communities. The process of habitat restoration is an exciting real-life project that extends through the K–12 curriculum and beyond, and includes many disciplines such as science, math, social studies, language arts, and related arts.
Discover how restoring native ecosystems can:
- Invigorate your school and community through interdisciplinary learning experiences and citizen science approaches for all ages
- Enhance community awareness, skills, and knowledge of stewardship actions to enhance biodiversity and prevent pollution through restoration and bio-retention
- Support relevant learning that connects youth to culture and place while teaching ecological and environmental issues and solutions
- Inspire a personal understanding of their relationship with others and the natural world
