California’s Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education (AEOE), Ten Strands, and the California Environmental Literacy Initiative (CAELI) are pleased to award Save California Salmon as the 2022 Environmental Education Organization of the Year. Justice for California tribes and the environment is at the heart of SCS’s work. They are a Native-led organization that specializes in organizing, policy advocacy, leadership and curriculum development, media, hosting events, and youth action. Land Back, Water Back, and Fire Back are some of their proposed solutions to protect California’s land and water and people from the effects of climate change while restoring justice to Native communities. SCS supports the fisheries and water protection work of the local communities, and advocates effective policy change for clean water, restored fisheries and vibrant communities. They also support youth-led action centered on cultural and educational advocacy, which is intertwined with watershed action in California’s salmon-dependent Tribal communities.
