National forests are the ultimate "outdoor classroom," with natural processes and human activities interacting in interesting and amazing ways. In this section of the web site, you can learn more about local flora, fauna, and history, pick up tips on outdoor ethics and safety, and find resources for your own teaching or classroom.
The Conservation Education program (CE) helps people of all ages understand and appreciate our country's natural resources -- and learn how to conserve those resources for future generations. Conservation education helps people see 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 problems. 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.
