Conservation Education helps people of all ages understand and appreciate our country's natural resources.
What are natural resources?
Natural resources aren't made by humans, but things that exist freely on earth. Everyone depends on natural resources each day. Natural Resources include: water (seas and fresh water), land, soils, rocks, forests (vegetation), animals (including fish), fossil fuels and minerals. These Natural Resources are the basis of life on earth.
It's important to learn how to conserve those resources for future generations. Conservation education enables people to realize how natural resources and ecosystems affect each other and how resources can be used wisely.
Conservation Education also encourages people to be better stewards of our natural resources and use them in a responsible manner.
