This study represents an important step forward in our understanding of how placebased learning can improve environmental quality. While this research emphasizes education programs focused on air quality, the study findings have direct implications for other environmental areas and are of great value to public land managers as they develop and improve their education programs. This research also illustrates the value of placebased learning in opening doors to partnerships between public lands and their neighboring communities. Working collaboratively, public land managers, communities, and schools can create educational experiences that improve environmental quality and engage the next generation of stewards.
