By Jennifer Gallo-Fox, Ariadni Kouzeli

Through regular classroom communications teachers facilitate family partnership in nature-based learning. Teachers can promote family engagement in the local environment and foster lifelong naturalists with a strong commitment to the earth through consistent welcoming invitations via classroom communications. Strategies for supporting families to engage in activities in their local environment are described. By strengthening nature-connectedness, dedication to sustainability, and environmental literacy teachers assist in the development of citizens who will advocate for the earth and its environment.
