Bringing EE Leaders Together

hands in themiddle

We plan, organize and host an environmental education conference to provide professional development opportunities for anyone interested in learning how to promote environmental literacy. The conference consists of multiple concurrent sessions, field experiences, workshops, keynote speakers, exhibits, and full group plenary sessions. Conference attendance ranges from 130-150 participants and generally includes non-formal educators; classroom teachers; and agency, business, and non-profit representatives interested in environmental education. The conference also serves as a forum to host nationally and regionally recognized leaders  to share their expertise and perspectives on national and regional initiatives to help broaden our exposure.
