National parks are created in order to protect the unique features of the most valuable natural areas of Poland. These protected areas as ideal “research laboratories” can function as almost model examples of ecosystems of which discovering is important not only for science but also can be used in practice. They are also essential destinations for large groups of tourists searching for other experiences than those offered in crowded resorts. Additionally, they are also a fantastic “didactic help” and it’s hard to overestimate their role in education. Many contents regarding biology but also geography are perfectly suitable to be realized in terrain. However, environmental education is not only about presenting the complexity of processes occurring in nature (including those within living things) or a science explaining how to recognize different species. Legislation regarding local history and tourism might be treated as a tool allowing to introduce contents that are virtually absent in the core curriculum to the didactic process through linking of the objectives of local history with the objectives of the particular lectures/classes. One of the crucial objectives that are geared toward the conduct of environmental education is the creation of the feeling of responsibility for the environment that surrounds us.
