his service learning based Capstone project was part of the Community Housing Improvement Systems and Planning Association's (CHISPA) environmental education program for the low-income Moro Cojo Housing Development home owners. This program was mandated by the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Moro Cojo Housing Development. The project consisted of the writing, design, and production of three environmental brochures on a "happy habitat," recycling, and composting and a class presentation to be given to the future Moro Cojo Housing Development home owners. The effectiveness of the environmental education methodologies used in this program were assessed using a questionnaire distributed to the home owners prior to and after attending the class. The program was considered successful. The project was developed in the broader context of environmental education for the historically under-educated and low-income populations with special consideration taken for minority cultures.
