Teaching and Reaching
Climate change affects everything: our water, our food, the air we breathe. Our Climate Change Initiatives reach out to the communities you live in. By teaching the next generations about climate change and harnessing the power of local organizations, we can protect and improve the quality of life for all.
Working together here in the Midwest, 12 organizations, including the Chicago Botanic Garden, are pooling their resources to change the dynamic around climate change education.
With support from NASA, and in collaboration with the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) and schools and teachers throughout Illinois, the Chicago Botanic Garden has developed the Climate Change in My Backyard curriculum series. The project targets grades 5 to 12.
