Sedona Recycles is a non-profit community recycling center dedicated to environmental education. They offer free classes for any grade or age level to schools, clubs, and other organizations. Classes are specific to teachers’ desired goals, and educational tours of the facility are an excellent tie-in. Recycling conserves energy, water, and land as well as other natural resources so many facets of curriculum can be addressed. They have done recycled art classes with materials provided from the center, and even marine biology classes including information on the effects of plastics in the ocean.
The Cooper Center for Environmental Learning is an organization that provides adventurous and hands-on learning experiences in the Sonoran Desert. They achieve this through a partnership between the Tucson Unified School District, who owns and maintains the facilities, and the University of Arizona’s College of Education, who facilitates educational programming for learners of all ages.
