The Environmental Education program sets the foundation for leadership in and stewardship of the environmental community.
Environmental Education is often confused with Outdoor Education, Interpretive Style teachings (Naturalist), and Citizen Science methods. These teaching styles are actually small components of Environmental Education and they should not be separated. Try to think of it like this; Environmental Education is an umbrella that houses all of these components.
With EE at Heritage, teachers have the opportunity to create place-attachments within the student body that will enable students to feel more connected to school grounds than they have in the past. Place-Based education is extremely important and if students are not connected to place, it is then harder for them to go out and change a community.
