Partners in Education

 

School Partnership

The Broward County Environmental Protection and Growth Management Department (EPGMD) believes that educating school age children about the environment and their role in preserving and protecting the natural resources for the future instills environmental stewardship at an early age. In an effort to support environmental education in Broward County, the EPGMD has entered into a partnership agreement with Broward County Public Schools (BCPS), the sixth largest school district in the nation.

Outstanding BCPS environmental stewards were celebrated at the second P3 (Preserving Our Planet for Posterity) Eco-Challenge Awards Ceremony held on May 14, 2014 at the Long Key Nature Center in Davie. Platinum sponsor Whole Foods Market and Gold sponsors South Florida Audubon Society, National Wildlife Federation, Hazen and Sawyer, Everglades Holiday Park, JM Family Enterprises (and many more) contributed to this inspiring event.
