The Leopold Education Project (LEP) is an innovative, interdisciplinary conservation ethics curriculum targeted for grades 6-12. The goal of the program is to create an ecologically literate citizenry.
The LEP increases student’s awareness of the land, informs them of how to make responsible choices for our planet, while simultaneously teaching important social, collaborative and critical thinking skills.
The LEP is unique in that it uses a classic environmental literary work, Aldo Leopold’s “A Sand County Almanac.”
