Wahsega 4-H Center

Environmental Education

The Georgia 4-H EE program uses the outdoors as classrooms without walls to provide overnight academic field studies for students in public, private, homeschool and home-based learning in grades K-12.

Participants report an increase in 1) student relationships with their classmates; 2) student relationships with their teacher; 3) environmental awareness; 4) environmental behavioral intent; and 5) connectedness to nature.
