Education and outreach materials that emphasize ecosystem services are a great way to engage non-environmental stakeholders in environmental issues, because they are able to show how the environment affects things that people care about.
Education and outreach materials are targeted to specific audiences, and the materials provided below offer an example of how ecosystem services information can be integrated into these types of products. We provide these as examples that can be built upon and adapted.
- Middle school educational material (game and activities)
- Fact sheets describing the connection between oyster reef restoration projects and ecosystem services for five estuaries in the Gulf of Mexico (created for the GEMS project)
