Education in Sustainability across a range of levels from elementary school through college has never been more important than at this time of climate change, habitat loss and other environmental impacts. Sustainability education is extremely effective when techniques are demonstrated in the field and the learning is hands-on. This project provided environmental interpretation and access to an old growth forest and adjacent old field. The student team developed concept plans for landscape restoration as well as basic functions like parking, trail systems, environmental interpretation stations and environmental art. The partners and beneficiaries for this project include Ball State students, public school students and the general public.
