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.

governor kate brown and first gentleman dan litteRoadmap to Outdoor Symposium

Oregonians share a special connection to the outdoors. Governor Kate Brown and First Gentleman Dan Little want to share their love for the outdoors with others and increase connections to the outdoors by more Oregonians.

Let’s determine barriers to the outdoors, and develop solutions to expand access to more Oregonians. Let’s chart a roadmap to the outdoors and create outdoor enthusiasts.

By attending and supporting this effort, we hope to improve the quality of life for all Oregonians by fostering an appreciation of Oregon’s natural wonders by increasing access to the outdoors. Join us on February 15!

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.
