Our forests are beautiful places where we can experience the richness of nature. They provide us with lumber, and they protect our water and air. Some say that the forests are the lungs of the Earth. But today's forests also encounter many wildfires and challenges that lead to poor health. Why does this happen, and what can we do about it? The answers are IN the forest.
Water conservation is an ethical challenge. Integrating ethical water education into our programs instills a sense of stewardship, ownership, and responsibility in our youth, shaping behaviors and inspiring solutions to our water resource issues. Each year, 4th-grade students across Coconino County are invited to participate in a Water Ethics Contest. The contest, which began in 2010, is sponsored by the Coconino Plateau Watershed Partnership (a branch of the Coconino Plateau Water Advisory Council) and hosted by Willow Bend Environmental Education Center.
