National Environmental Education Week

This year National Environmental Education Week will be taking place April 10th-16th! Register now to become a part of a network of educators dedicated to increasing the environmental literacy of K-12 students.

The ocean covers nearly three quarters of our planet's surface, provides 70 percent of the oxygen in the atmosphere and houses about 20 percent of the known species on Earth. It regulates climate and weather and provides food and energy resources for humans worldwide. No matter how far from the coast, water in every stream or river on the planet eventually ends up in the ocean, and all life on Earth is dependent upon its health. Recognizing the importance of protecting the health of our ocean and understanding our dependence upon it regardless of its proximity, EE Week's 2011 theme is Ocean Connections.

Go to the National Environmental Foundation website for more information about the benefits of participating in this week!
