Climate Change- High School

Students will define climate, explore the impacts of climate change to the maple sugar industry using real local data, calculate their own carbon footprint, and brainstorm ways to positively impact their environment.

This program can be a fiedltrip to Arcadia, which includes exploring the nature sanctuary or can be an in-class lesson, in either one class or a series of classes.
