For the last two years a diverse group of educators has been gathering information and drafting an environmental literacy plan for New Hampshire.  This effort is part of a nationwide goal of having environmental literacy plans for all states.  This session will focus on the reasoning behind having an environmental literacy plan as well as the process that has been used in its development. Participants will discuss the points that are contained in New Hampshire’s draft plan.
