Creating a Generation of Heroes

Project Hero is a free project-based learning tool and framework that connects young heroes to information about threatened species & ecosystems guiding them on a Quest to uncover and implement solutions to help locally.

Each Quest students undertake is a unique learning and activation journey that focuses on locally-relevant environmental issues. We present multi-media content, lessons, and activities for exploring and understanding the threats to local species and ecosystems. Every quest culminates in a hands-on project to empower your students to make a meaningful impact in their environment.


Quests are unique pathways developed in partnership with expert organizations
to explore and address environmental challenges in your own community.
