Promoting Professional Development and Best Practice in EE
Roles at NAAEE:ee360 Fellow
Stacey Moore is an Education Technician with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center in Wyoming. She has been able to establish a strong community outreach in central Wyoming through her History and Outdoor Clubs. Her goal is to create opportunities for children to connect to the outdoors, to nature, to history, and to our public lands. Moore wishes to utilize the ee360 fellowship to increase families’ awareness of playing and learning in the outdoors during the winter months when many wish to hibernate indoors. Stacey holds a Master’s degree in International Studies from the University of Wyoming and has served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Benin, West Africa. She spends winter free time skiing, and summer free time in her garden.
About Stacey‘s ee360 Community Action Project
The BLM manages multi-use actions for current and future generations on over 245 million acres of public land: land where American children should be visible and connected. Despite the public ownership of these lands, children, even in rural communities, are spending fewer and fewer hours on their holdings. Moore’s project works to increase visitation to public lands during the seasons when many parents wish to stay indoors. Winter Adventure Day strives to connect children and families to their public lands during inclement times of year. Her outreach project connects local recreation, environmental educators, and federal employees to local families in the community to synthesize a fun day in the snow. Parents can recreate with their children in an environment where local experts can guide safety protocols, introduce environmental ethics, and promote outdoor activity. Families participated in snow science, animal adaptations lessons, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, shooting, and many other events.
