A Blueprint for Environmental Literacy: Educating Every California Student In, About, and For the Environment¬†outlines the strategies recommended by the Environmental Literacy Task Force. As stated by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, “This Blueprint must become a plan of action, unifying us with focus and purpose . . . in improving the quality and reach of student education for environmental literacy in California.”

Ten Strands, a California non-profit, has partnered with the California Department of Education to help implement the strategies outlined in the Blueprint.
