Four events in Maine in the next few weeks will seek public participation on an environmental literacy plan for Maine’s schools.

The meetings are convened by Maine Audubon, the Maine Departments of Education and Conservation, and the Maine Environmental Education Association.

The four meetings will give the public the chance to weigh in on an environmental literacy plan for Maine. The plan is aimed at helping Maine share in millions of federal dollars put toward supporting environmental literacy in classrooms, to help students recognize and identify healthy ecosystems.

The four groups working on this effort seek input from parents, teachers, students, natural-resource professionals, school administrators and other school staff, home-schooling families, staff and students in higher education, and more.

The meetings will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on May 5 at Gilsland Farm Audubon Center, in Falmouth; from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on May 6 at the Olsen Student Center at the University of Maine at Farmington; from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on May 10 at Fields Pond Audubon Center in Holden; and from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on May 11 at Houlton High School in Houlton.
