Educate on!

Document Actions

I graduated from Greenville High School in 1997, and I wish the natural resources program had been offered back then (HCN, 2/7/11). We need more of this type of education in our schools -- and we need it soon. The more we get kids involved in caring for and studying natural resources, the brighter the future will be for us all. I currently teach science and natural history at public and private schools in San Francisco. The lack of any outdoor or nature-based education is horrifying, especially in a city with so many parks and natural spaces. Great job, GHS!
