National Environmental Education Week begins today!
Meet natural science illustrator, Christine Elder, whose specialty is teaching children about nature. She will be holding office hours this week at ArtPlantae Today and will be answering questions from readers. Read more about Christine in the following post.
The theme for EE Week is Be Water and Energy Wise. There is no better way to begin this week than with telling you about Shane Burckle the force behind local outreach programs designed to educate the public about our global water crisis. The book, Water: The Epic Struggle for Wealth, Power, and Civilization, comes with Shane’s enthusiastic recommendation.
On behalf of all contributors to EE Week at the national level and here at ArtPlantae, thank you for your attention and for your participation in our collective efforts to increase environmental literacy.
