National Wildlife Federation’s Eco-Schools USA

The National Wildlife Federation’s Eco-Schools USA is a Pre K-12 program in partnership with Oregon Green Schools that provides a framework for effective “green” management of school grounds, facilities, curricula and student experience. One of 12 Eco- Schools sustainability pathways, Learning About Forests (LEAF), aims to increase knowledge about the key role forests play in sustaining life on our planet. LEAF promotes our forests as a natural asset to be treasured and kept safe for future generations, while also instilling a sense of ownership through student engagement in the natural world. Eco-Schools USA is a self-guided platform that provides educational resources including connections to curriculum and education standards, a public personalized school webpage, and STEM learning opportunities. In addition, schools can certify their garden or restoration project as a Schoolyard Habitat.  Free trees are provided through the Trees for Wildlife Program.
