Ninth in the Service-Learning in the Disciplines Series, this book discusses the pervasive use of service-learning in environmental studies programs and explains why it often is a required part of the environmental studies curriculum. Contributors from a wide range of college and university environmental studies programs discuss the benefits and challenges these programs provide and the consequent natural fit between environmental studies and service-learning.
