Conference

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.

Stay tuned for our next conference in 2020!

Thank you to all who joined us and supported our annual gathering in Canby, Oregon at The Grove Camp and Retreat Center. It was a weekend full of opportunities to network with others across the state and to learn and share with each other. 

"The EEAO conference was great! I didn't want to leave. I had been traveling for work just about non stop since August first and was feeling pretty exhausted and uninspired. I am so glad I went! The first night fired me up, and by the time I left the conference my battery was recharged. Thank you! "  ~ Keith Williams, Executive DIrector, NorthBay

"The quality of and food for thought gained from the conference sessions were inspiring. I was able to put strategies and ideas into practice straight away. Also, the wide range of organizations, businesses and governmental agencies represented there was impressive and networking opportunities were invaluable. Being surrounded by like-minded, passionate and fun individuals was encouraging and reinvigorating. I'm ready for the next conference now!" ~ Lacey Moore, Environmental and Science Education Consultant and Curriculum Developer
