The Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an innovative, interdisciplinary conservation education curriculum based on the classic writings of Aldo Leopold, a renowned conservationist. The LEP program helps students recognize their ties to the natural world - and their role in the conservation and protection of natural resources. Activities emphasize careful observation, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. Both classroom lessons and outdoor activities are included. The ultimate goal of the LEP is to instill a love, respect, and admiration for the land, leading to environmentally responsible citizenship. Curriculum can easily be adjusted to all grade levels.
Who Should Attend? Educators, Naturalists and curriculum coordinators who lead workshops for teachers of science, language arts, math, art, history; non-formal educators; natural resource professionals;4-H and Scout leaders - anyone interested in learning more about fostering a relationship between youth and the natural world.
