Teaching and Learning Resources

The Lane County Master Recycler Program not only supports individualsRodney Bloom in our community with training,  networking  and inspiration, we also offer tools and resources  that can be used  for further learning and research,  as book study, eco-club or simplicity circle activities
          as presentation materials, 
          to engage with community in meaningful ways  

Below and to the left are resources available for educational purposes and advancement of personal understanding about waste issues. We share this with the expectation that use of these resources will be freely shared in classrooms,  community groups, churches, workplaces and more.
Schools, Teachers, Community Educators, Master Recyclers,  and active, involved individuals are all welcome to borrow resources.

Contact Kelly Bell 541-682-2059  to check out materials,  or for more information.
