Unit Overview 

Learners develop a deeper understanding of what it means to be an environmental steward. They identify environmental misuses of natural resources in their home, school, and community.

Service Experience

The learners will be involved in the self-selecting, developing and enacting a service plan to provide a positive impact on the natural resources found in their selected environment.
