DEP Teaching Green: New PA Gateway To Green Education Hub; PA Digital Water Atlas; Grant; Programs; Much More!

The latest
DEP Teaching Green environmental education newsletter is chock full of new information for formal and informal educators.  Here’s just a sampling--

PA Gateway To Green

Pennsylvania Gateway to Green is a new online hub for Pennsylvania educators (formal and nonformal) to access environmental education resources from government agencies, non-profits, and other partners to improve environmental literacy among Pennsylvania residents.

Instead of searching for individual agency or organization websites, educators can use Gateway to Green to find--

-- Links to state and federal agencies and nonformal and other environmental education organizations that provide environmental education resources, information on what environmental literacy means in Pennsylvania, and resources for creating environmental literacy plans.

-- Ways to identify and reach environmental justice communities.

-- Highlights of issues and education resources about Pennsylvania watersheds.

-- Programs and resources about careers in environmental-based science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Gateway to Green is supported by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and other organizations.

PA Digital Water Atlas

The DEP Water Use and Planning Program recently published an interactive Digital Water Atlas as part of the 2022 State Water Plan

The Digital Water Atlas storymap presents the landscape of Pennsylvania's extensive water and land resources and how they are managed. 

It is intended to help Pennsylvania leaders, educators, and residents understand where their water comes from and how it is affected by natural events and human activity, which is the first important step towards water planning.
