People & Environment Extension > Education
Environmental education (EE) seeks to inform and inspire people about nature and environmental issues. EE occurs in both formal education or classrooms and non-formal education such as after school programs, events, nature centers and museums.
In the School of Natural Resources, we teach two environmental education courses: NRES 322 "Environmental Education Curricula" and NRES 434/834 "Environmental Education and Interpretation."
SNR also teaches informal environmental education through the classes mentioned above as well as events, workshops and programs. Our programs include:
- Backpacks for Adventure
- After school science education in local Lincoln Public School Community Learning Centers
- Nebraska Invasive Species Program
- Nebraska Master Naturalist Program
- National Drought Mitigation Center
- Teacher workshop
- Climate Awareness Education
- NaturePalooza (2011-2015)
If you would like help developing a program, workshop, exhibit, curriculum, event, master plans, teacher program, signage, brochures, flyers, or even a center, please contact Lisa Pennisi .
