The National Wildlife Federation's Eco-Schools USA is a holistic program that strives to make environmental awareness and action an intrinsic part of the life and culture of a school. This global program is transformative, not additive; it is a transformation in your pedagogical approach to teaching.
The Eco-Schools USA team has worked with the three major sets of national standards as they relate to science education, National Science Education Standards, the Next Generation Science Standards, NGSS, and the Common Core State Standards, CCSS, to assist educators in weaving the Eco-Schools USA program into the existing curriculum.
