Partnerships with environmental organizations and agencies can help create effective conservation education in schools. This chapter presents strategies for building successful programs in school systems, including using effective communications, serving as a resource to schools, supporting academic standards, and integrating conservation education into legislation and policy. Education in schools should include learning about the local environment, but too often academic demands preclude the chance to study the natural world outside the classroom door. When conservation education links academic standards to the study of natural and social systems and their interactions, students, teachers, administrators, and the environment are all winners. This chapter describes a variety of successful approaches for implementing conservation education within schools, such as environment-based education and education for sustainability.
