Project Hero is an online program of the Captain Planet Foundation that challenges youth to be heroes for species and ecosystems in trouble. The Soil Quest takes young people on a learning journey to explore life living below our feet and the importance of healthy soils to maintain the carbon cycle. The Quest culminates in the design and implementation of a hands-on project to help maintain the health of soil around us.
