Education Northampton County Junior Conservation School

The Northampton County Junior Conservation School, in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources' Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center, has diligently developed the curriculum presented during our week-long program.

The program touches on the "critical elements" or land, water, air, and wildlife, and then ties everyday social, economic, political, and moral behaviors into the lessons, in an effort to show our participants how their very existence affects the world around us, and how decision making and management practices can limit those impacts.

It is not the intent to indoctrinate the participants, instead it is our goal to develop leadership potential, encourage critical thinking, problem solving, and provide the tools to consider the consequences of their actions.
