Education Outreach Program
Conservation Made Simple believes that education is the foundation of effective environmental conservation. This is why one of our main focuses is developing educational materials that teach the importance of a healthy relationship between humans and our environment. We are currently working on a curriculum for elementary students focusing on understanding the marine food web and the role of humans in it. We encourage kids to ask questions that expand their knowledge and inspire them to keep learning about the world around them. Hands on activities create an opportunity to try new things, activate the senses, and apply learning in a whole new way. Using the outdoors as a classroom helps immediately connect the concepts they learn with real-world applications and helps each student begin to develop their own relationship with nature. We want to create an atmosphere that inspires change and empowers kids to connect what they know about themselves to the living things around them. Conservation Made Simple knows that today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders, so we want to start educating them today about the issues facing this planet and the importance of our shared natural world.
Education Program Mission
Conservation Made Simple educates through asking questions, providing hands-on experiences, and immersing into nature to educate all ages about how to prioritize and build a healthy relationship with the environment.
Conservation Made Simple is developing an approach for college students to adopt eco-conscious lifestyle choices as they transition into creating their own lifestyles away from home. Conservation Made Simple aims to engage students with educational events and volunteer opportunities to build a network of interested students. This network will then be challenged to find ways to shape their campus experience to enable and encourage more eco-conscious lifestyle decisions from the wider student body. Conservation Made Simple also hopes to engage with students conducting environmental research to see where we might be able to provide support through organization, funding, or networking. Through these programs we hope to help student make the transition from school to the adult world as strong, inspired, dedicated environmental leaders.
