Why Conservation Education

Conservation Education helps people of all ages understand and appreciate our natural resources and learn how to use those natural resources now, while sustaining those resources for future generations. Through structured educational experiences and activities targeted to varying age groups and populations, conservation education enables people to realize how natural resources and ecosystems affect each other and how resources can be used wisely.

Through conservation education, people develop the critical thinking skills they need to understand the complexities of ecological issues. Conservation Education also encourages people to act on their own to conserve natural resources and use them in a responsible manner by making informed resource decisions.

Whether formal, non-formal, home school, or scouts (etc), Fairbanks Soil and Water Educators can assist you in teaching any subject, to any grade level utilizing our natural resources (forestry, water and soil). Our commitment can be seen in our educational materials, resources and our dedication to meet the needs of our community.
