Dear EEAO community and friends -
We acknowledge this hard time for the EE community across the world, and want to do our part to support the educators here in Oregon. We at EEAO take your health and safety very seriously and want to offer ways that we as an organization can support you, but also provide the community with resources to support each other.
EEAO is working hard to collect and share resources to all educators throughout the state to help get us all through this challenging time. Below is a link to a few resources, we will share more here and through our newsletter as we gather them. Please let us know if you have additional online materials that might be helpful to educators (or parents!). We will also share these materials through our social media outlets.
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 and environmental justice. We do this through professional development, advocacy, and state-wide conference. We are your resource in working with others around environmental education.
Hear updates directly from NAAEE every month and how you can get involve to support EE at the federal level. Get involve with eePRO Advocacy group.
