Save Environmental Education at the EPA

The U.S. House of Representatives recently proposed the elimination of all environmental education funding at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The EPA's Office of Environmental Education supported critical environmental education initiatives in all 50 states for over 20 years. It is the time for us to tell Congress that now more than ever we must continue to educate Americans on the environmental challenges and opportunities that impact our economy, health, national security and energy independence.

The EPA's Office of Environmental Education is an important component of environmental education in America. It supports under-resourced programs such as professional development for teachers and funding to environmental education programs at all levels. The activities supported by the Office are also instrumental in cultivating youth, and especially young people of color, as future leaders in both the field of environmental education and a broad range of scientific professions.
