With fires returning to our forests this year, we’re once again reminded to acknowledge the importance of environmental literacy. 

Environmental literacy is having the knowledge and skills that enables you to make responsible decisions with regards to our relationships to nature, communities and future generations. With fires and heat waves increasing in frequency, we can’t help but wonder what the future holds for our planet.
