Environmental issues dominate the news, from renewable energy to climate change to protecting our lakes and streams. We take a look at how environmental education is being taught in local schools with Gail Hall, a Science Assessment Specialist with Vermont's Department of Education, and Lisa Purcell, the director of Four Winds Nature Institute.

Post your questions or comments in our online discussion below.  Or email them to Vermontedition@vpr.net.

And we talk with forester and environmental educator Lynn Levine of East Dummerston about her new book, "Snow Secrets." The young adult novel follows the exploits of two Vermont sixth graders who investigate several mysteries by tracking animals. 

Plus, we learn about a company that is making money off of little pieces of bare wood.
