This report discusses the effectiveness of current educational efforts in the state of North Carolina, identifies opportunities for new or expanded activity, and recommends a plan of action. The first section discusses the definition of environmental education and reasons why environmental education is needed. The second section discusses three general types of educational programs that: (1) deal with teacher accreditation through such activities as Project Wild and Project Learning Tree; (2) provide assistance to other organizations such as Stream Watch; and (3) present education/information directly to the public. The last section presents recommendations for the four target groups: (1) students in education systems, principally at the elementary and secondary level; (2) governmental officials; (3) members of the business community whose activities are regulated by the Department of Environment, Health and Natural Resources (DEHNR); and (4) the general public. For each recommendation general comments, a schedule for implementation, the key actors, and cost estimates are included. Three charts are attached. (KR)
