Planting a SEED in York County
The SEED Program

The Nation Ford Land Trust has developed a county-wide environmental education program for elementary and middle school students called Sharing Environmental Education and Discovery (SEED). SEED will provide teachers with an environmental based curriculum which meets requirements in South Carolina's State Scientific Standards for grades kindergarten through eighth grade, and which can be brought to their classrooms and school campuses.

These science requirements emphasize organisms and their habitats, terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and the processes and responses of plants and animals. All of these topics can be linked to the natural communities surrounding students' homes and schools. Helping them make this connection at a young age will be reflected in the decisions they make as individuals and communities in the future.

This program is funded by the Harry Hampton Memorial Wildlife Fund.
