IDEM’s Community Environmental Health Program offers programs focused on reaching our most vulnerable population where they play and learn and grow. The program focuses on educating parents, schools, and care givers about reducing exposures to environmental health hazards found in schools and child care settings. These environmental health threats include diesel exhaust, mercury, pesticides, radon, lead, PCB’s and more. The 5 Star Environmental Recognition Program for Child Care Providers and the Green Steps for Schools programs recognize that the most important natural resources we protect are not only the air, water or land, but ultimately our children.
