POP Network

The Promise of Place Network is a grassroots effort to build support for people, schools, and organizations engaged in efforts that use natural and cultural contexts to help people to know to care about the places where they live. We are interested in helping educators find resources to help them get started, organizations connect across state boundaries, and professionals connect across disciplines.

It is free to join the network. Submit information about your organization by clicking here. Network members will be able to post events to our Calendar, publicize and spread the word about their organization, and connect with other professionals in the field.

"Living Machine" & Wetlands Restoration

Seventh- and eighth-graders learn how wetlands function through a service-learning project with the Department of Environmental Protection's Wetlands Restoration Unit. Students construct a "living machine," a self-sustaining, integrated, four-chambered ecosystem in which the waste from one chamber becomes the nutrients for the next.
