This week, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Take Care of Texas program announced a new partnership with Texas PBS as part of a statewide awareness campaign about ways Texans can protect and conserve the people, places, and natural resources in our state. The partnership aims to promote awareness of conservation efforts in Texas through tip videos featuring Chet Garner, host of PBS’ The Daytripper.
As part of this partnership, educational units, including free lesson plans and student worksheets designed for Texas teachers, will be available on PBS LearningMedia starting this month. The collection covers conservation topics related to air, water, and waste.
PBS LearningMedia offers free educational resources for PreK-12 educators and students, with a focus on enhancing educator practice and promoting equitable student learning. The collection on PBS LearningMedia, developed by Texas PBS, uses insights and data from TCEQ researchers and science communicators to provide science-based educational resources.
Take Care of Texas is a statewide program of TCEQ that provides helpful information on Texas’ successes in environmental protection and encourages all Texans to take the pledge to keep air and water clean, conserve water and energy, and reduce waste.
