Arizona Eco-Schools

About Arizona Eco-Schools


The Eco-Schools Program is based on a global initiative that seeks to engage students through a systems-thinking lens to apply learning to effect change toward environmental sustainability through thoughtful activities and actions, building economic awareness, environmental responsibility, and civic engagement with an objective to cultivate meaningful, lasting relationships with the community.


The Arizona Association of Conservation Districts (AACD), in partnership with the Arizona Association for Environmental Education (AAEE) and the Arizona Wildlife Federation (AWF), is working to expand the National Wildlife Federation Eco-Schools program across Arizona to educate youth about the nexus of agriculture and conservation.
