It's because of the Integrated Environmental Planning Program that I now understand what things are important to me and what my values are. This is because over the past two years IEP has exposed me to different types of education and experiences. It inspired me and changed my school of thought.

Hands-on training does not even begin to describe the kind of education we received. The key to our quick and extensive learning was our outdoor labs. We applied our new knowledge through observing our natural surroundings and by learning to use a brand-new new set of tools. Through this applied learning, I gained a new confidence in myself.

Before this program I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do in life, but now I feel like I am going to go down the right path towards a bright future. I owe that to the great teachers and the friends I made along the way which I know I will keep in contact for years to come.
