The Living Earth Environmental Studies Schools are composed of a minimum of 40 hours of study of specific units divided into four courses of 10 hours, each of which included a two-hour field trip. Courses investigate air, land and water. The units are divided in ecology and environmental science, life on earth and earth stewardship.
Bucci and Ryan have completed the required courses and have taken four refresher courses to reach the status of Master Environmental Consultants.
