The main focus of this paper is a needs assessment which was conducted by teachers to determine the priority of environmental education programs and the training needs of teachers. Results indicate that teachers found hands-on, interdisciplinary workshops the most useful. Teachers identified the need for environmental education centers as a top priority followed by outdoor education and professional development through training workshops. (YDS)
