- Our professional development opportunities for teachers provide them with cutting-edge scientific information and teacher-tested lesson plans.
- Many of the educator materials and services are free or low-cost.
- Educational literature and workshops for adults help all Maryland citizens improve the environment in which they live.
- Our summer camps and special events teach youth about the environment and what they can do to protect it.
