Effective conservation aims to integrate, rather than compete with, the needs of the human and biological communities that share landscapes. This chapter focuses on techniques to connect classrooms and communities with conservation. Conservation education techniques, such as service-learning, issue investigation, and project-based learning, can involve students, teachers, and community members in finding creative approaches to issues such as reducing carbon emissions and building community gardens. In addition, public participation in scientific research involves collaboration between members of the public and scientists, and includes both citizen science and community-based research as examples. Finally, this chapter describes mapping as a technique that allows individuals or groups to create visual representations of resources, a community, or a region. The techniques described in this chapter bring real conservation issues to the forefront of communities and classrooms and ultimately help achieve conservation goals.
