How can people live comfortably without harming the environment? All life depends on the natural world. How can we have clean air, water, and land plus healthy habitats for native plants and animals, and still lead our modern lives?
Here in Northeast Ohio and all over the world, people are trying to figure this out. There are lots of great ideas for how to do things better at home, at school, and at work. Many cities are setting sustainability goals and competing to be the greenest in the world!
The students that attend the resident program at Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center (CVEEC) spend four days and three nights in the national park learning about sustainability and how to better protect our local watersheds. Sustainability is living in an earth-friendly way to assure the necessities of life for all living things both for today and the future. A watershed is an area of land where the water all drains into the same place, such as the Cuyahoga River or Lake Erie.
