Even after 40 years (40! Can that be true?), I continue to love attending the conference. As a student, a museum educator, an independent contractor, and even now as NAAEE’s conference manager, I’ve relished this week as it breathes life into both my personal and professional spirits. Each year, I’ve built on existing relationships and I’ve come away with friends and colleagues, new hope, and new perspectives that have greatly enhanced my career and beyond.
Deadline: August 1. Do you know of an individual or organization that has accomplished great things in environmental education? You probably do! This is your chance to recognize the wonderful work of incredibly hardworking individuals and organizations for the benefit of the environment.
