Next week, April 11-17, is National Environmental Education Week. As an environmental science teacher, it would be easy for me to participate normally. I’m on maternity leave, so I started thinking about it… You don’t need to be a teacher in a formal school setting to participate in National Environmental Education Week. In fact, I think informal education can have the same impact, if not bigger, when it comes to environmental issues. So…
I’ve decided to host my very first challenge at Farmer’s Daughter!!! I challenge YOU to participate in National Environmental Education Week. At some point during the week of April 11-17, educate someone about the environment. It doesn’t have to be fancy! You can work with your kids, your significant other, friends, or even pledge to educate yourself! Then write a blog post about it and send me the link, and I’ll share the links here on my blog.
I don’t have a cool button to put on your blog, but if someone with some skills (and without a 3 1/2 week old baby to take up your time) wants to make one up, please share! The real winner of the challenge will be the planet, so spread the word!!! Update: Thanks to Rob for the button at the top of this post!!!
