Learn-and-serve Environmental Anthropology Field (LEAF) School

Learn-and-serve Environmental Anthropology Field (LEAF) School

Created by Thomas Murphy and Kerrie Murphy of Edmonds Community College, this lesson describes the LEAF School, which combines academic instruction employing service-learning with an AmeriCorps program so that students earn college credit scholarships while working with tribes, businesses, governments, and non-profits to make fishing, farming and forestry more sustainable. Here, visitors will find a number of different project surveys, each of which includes maps and graphs with survey data, as well as learning and service objectives. For educators and students in agriculture and ecology, this is an excellent resource with lessons and background information that help to integrate mathematics into to the coursework.
