Creating a Generation of Heroes

Project Hero is a free, project-based learning tool and framework that engages young people in Quests to help threatened species & ecosystems in their own communities.

Each Quest offers a unique learning and activation journey that focuses on locally-relevant environmental issues. Quests present multi-media content, lessons, and activities to help students explore and understand the threats to local species and ecosystems. Each Quest culminates in students designing and implementing a hands-on project to make a meaningful impact in their environment.
