Why Is An EE Association Needed?

Oregon's working lands, wild places, open spaces, communities, people, and businesses all depend on each other. The next generation needs the skills, knowledge, attitudes, motivations, and commitment to work individually and collectively to ensure Oregon continues to have a vibrant future. We believe environmental education is the key to that future. We support our teachers, administrators, resource professionals, nature centers, environmental educators, and volunteers who are in the trenches - getting kids & adults outside, teaching teachers, training staff, working with schools, working with families, teaching adults, doing environmental education - everything and anything that cultivates environmental literacy. We do this through leadership development, advocacy, and state-wide conference. We are your resource in working with others around environmental education.

Children learn best through their everyday experiences with the people they love and trust, and when the learning is fun. And the best place for these experiences is outdoors, in the natural world.
