The Conservation Classroom Program educates third, fourth, and fifth graders about state trust land, how revenue is generated, and how money flows to public schools and universities. Students are given a lesson about natural resources, and they learn the difference between non-renewable and renewable resources through creating posters about energy resources. They learn about wind power and turbine design and how electricity can be generated.
The Conservation Classroom Program meets state social studies and science standards. In 2012, more than 5,500 pounds of aluminum were collected by public school classes involved in the recycling program.
