As a department, we are focusing on four primary goals:

MDE Coordinates Project to Support Environmental and Outdoor Education.
With funding from the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources, beginning in 2011, MDE will be coordinating a project to integrate environmental education and outdoor education into the instruction of academic standards for students in grades 7-12. Professional development and program incentive grants will be provided to help teachers use the environment and outdoors as a context for student learning.
