Capstone Project Title
As technology advances, and cities and population grow, there is a higher need for environmental education. Outdoor education provides many benefits in many different ways. Libraries offer free services to everyone in the community and provide the perfect opportunity to give everyone a chance to learn about the environment. This project focuses on enhancing library programming through nature based learning, asking the question How can communities benefit from environmental education focused library programming? Research shows that there are many different benefits to environmental education and exposure to nature. The literature reviews discusses how outdoor learning is good on mental and physical health, and how this affects the state of the environment. A workshop was created to explain the importance of this form of learning to local libraries and give hands-on activities that can be included in programming.
