Guidelines for Excellence – Trying to Capture Our Collective Wisdom
What does it mean to be environmentally literate? What makes great environmental education instructional materials so good? What should be kept in mind as new programs are developed at a nature center? Providing some guidance so that environmental educators can more easily address these questions, and many more, is at the core of NAAEE’s National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education.
