A Blueprint for Environmental Literacy: Educating Every California Student In, About, and For the Environment - A Report by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson’s Environmental Literacy Task Force (2015)

Children & Nature Network - Access large amount of publications supporting children being outside in nature: abstracts, special reports & collections, studies & surveys.

EE-Link: Research - a collection of research put together by the North American Association for Environmental Education.

Environmental Literacy Briefs - Developed by Professor Nicole Ardoin’s Social Ecology Lab at Stanford University, with support from the Pisces Foundation and NAAEE's ee360, these four environmental literacy briefs address topics such as: What is environmental literacy? What are pathways and progressions in environmental literacy? How might we assess outcomes related to various program characteristics, such as length and intensity (sometimes referred to as program “dosage”)? Finally, when we talk about “community” or “collective” environmental literacy, how might we move beyond the individual to consider a larger scale, how might we measure it, and why does it matter?
