Conserve. Prepare. Protect.
UESEP seeks to improve citizen appreciation for science and to enhance their understanding of the environment. Providing environmental education is key to advances in conservation and to avoiding the long‐term consequences associated with poor environmental stewardship and management of our natural resources.
What is UESEP?
- UESEP is the acronym for Urban Environmental Science Education Program.
- UESEP is an interdisciplinary approach to environmental education.
- This program provides adults and youth with natural resource conservation strategies that lead to improved environmental awareness and stewardship.
UESEP consists of four different components that can be mixed and matched to create a large program series or taken individually depending on interest: Camp Conservation, Engaging Citizens through Environmental Education, STEM in the Garden, Youth Exploring Environmental Science.
The Camp Conservation component is an on-site field trip alternative for youth to experience environmental science education that focuses on green issues currently facing urban communities. Click for more info
