TEXT: Environmental Science, Karen Arms (Holt)
During this course, we will examine and discuss concepts and issues with our local and global environment. We will take a balanced approach to our study, focusing not only on problems facing our planet, but also on the potential solutions. When exploring environmental challenges, we will also take time to examine nature’s sheer beauty. Moreover, we will take a special interest in our local community of Bayonne, issues facing our community, and what we can do to solve them.
