Center for Environmental Education

"One of the penalties of an ecological education," wrote Aldo Leopold, "is that one lives alone in a world of wounds."

Located in Oxford, Ohio, the non-profit Center for Environmental Education is committed to helping heal natural systems.  Working with partner organizations both locally and abroad—including The Oxford Society, Miami University's Hefner Museum of Natural History and Institute for the Environment and Sustainability, and Tasbayam (a Costa Rican environmental organization)—the Center participates in efforts to restore local habitats and ecosystems; offers inquiry-based educational programs for audiences of all ages; and sponsors innovative education and conservation projects at Tortuguero, Costa Rica.

Through certification programs and hands-on service-learning projects, the Center enables Miami students to improve the health of the natural world as they teach others about natural systems and ecological processes.  In this way, students can help heal our 'world of wounds'—one project at a time.
