Environmental Education Opportunities for the Summer

 

Forestinfo.org - environmental education resources to keep students sharp during summer break

(Minneapolis, MN) - As students prepare to end the school year Dovetail Partners, a Minneapolis-based environmental think-tank, urges educators, parents and students to make use of the environmental education resources available on Forestinfo.org.

 

Forestinfo.org is Dovetail's home for environmental education resources that are understandable, unbiased, accurate, and available in a wide variety of formats. "It is important to provide easy access to environmental information that is understandable, factual, and that can support exciting learning opportunities," says Kathryn Fernholz, Executive Director of Dovetail Partners, the host of Forestinfo.org.

 

The site contains Lesson Plans, Teachers' Tools, Eco-Links, Videos, Forest Fast Breaks, a Forestry Careers Directory, and an Environmental Quiz that helps narrow the gap between often-inaccurate perceptions and realities about environmental issues.

 

"These resources offer a great opportunity for students to continue learning during the summer and provide hands-on activities that stimulate young minds," says Fernholz.
