(Mpls, MN) - This summer 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, curricula, books, brochures, posters and videos.Forestinfo.org also contains an Environmental Quiz developed by Dovetail that helps narrow the gap between often-inaccurate perceptions and realities about environmental issues.
