The Pennsylvania Department of Education in the early 1970's approved the first Environmental Education Program in the state of Pennsylvania. The teacher of environmental education was encouraged to consider man's interaction with his natural world as a means of promoting pupil awareness of the total environment.

Environmental education programs were designed to emphasize man as a dominant factor in his environment, the values afforded to man by the natural resources, the principles and practices of resource management and the role of man and his government in maintaining a source of natural resources.

The Pennsylvania Geographical Society exists to promote effective geographic teaching, research, and literacy.
