Green Mapmaking Tools for Youth inspire educators, youth group leaders and young people. While our materials are a bit dated, they provide youth with new understandings and assessment, communications, and planning skills. For example, check out the terrific Baltimore Green Map to see how mapping, STEM (or with the arts - STEAM) and planning skills can accelerate whole-child learning and ignite a durable connection to home places.
