Protecting Public Health and the Environment.

Environmental Education Resources

We all have a stake in protecting our environment — clean air, water, and land are essential to human existence. The more we know, the better able we will be to protect our environment. Fortunately, the environment is a fascinating subject for teachers, students, environmental professionals, and citizens alike.

Environmental Education Resources for Teachers

Teaching about the environment can be fun for both teachers and students. DEQ has developed lesson plans for various grade levels on a wide range of air quality, water quality, and waste management topics to assist teachers in providing environmental education. Learn more.
