Abstract: 

The purpose of this instructional unit is to encourage teachers to involve their students in the study of the values and actions of environmental heroes and heroines in order to develop their own land ethic. By examining the underlying values held by the people whom we admire, we can help students develop and refine their view of the natural community. The unit has three lessons that investigate the lives and work of environmental role-models and guides students to examine their own environmental values.
