Texas Has a PLAN!

So that all Texans may come to value Texas’ natural resources, know the principles of natural resources stewardship and live sustainably, educators came together from across the state to create a plan that would provide a framework for ongoing statewide efforts that foster natural resource/environmental literacy as a cornerstone of education, recreation and life-long learning.

The core of who we are as Texans lies in the sustenance, history and culture built around our natural world. The future of Texas’ natural and cultural resources depends on every one of us having a sense of place and our role in that place.

The Texas Natural Resource/Environmental Literacy Plan serves as a framework to coordinate statewide efforts of formal and informal educators to provide lifelong opportunities for all Texans, regardless of age, culture, and circumstances, to become stewards of our natural resources.
