Local Environmental Issues Research

Local Environmental Issues Research

“The conservationist’s most important task, if we are to save the earth, is to educate.” – Peter Scott

Here is a list to get you started with your local environmental issue research!

You have about 30 minutes to look through these websites.  Take notes and be ready to contribute ideas about what kinds of environmental issues we are facing in Boulder County.

As we are heading towards selecting an issue that we want to address as a class in our action project it is important to gather as much information as possible to make a good decision.  This time, in combination with the other work we have done in class, is your time to become informed.

Feel free to visit other local websites if you know some, but please start here.
