To promote environmental and outdoor education to facilitate positive community impacts on the conservation and sustainability of Delaware’s resources.

Goals & Objectives 

DAEE helps to ensure that every citizen in Delaware has the opportunity to become involved in meaningful outdoor experiences. DAEE provides resources for administrators, formal and non-formal educators, and concerned citizens on how and where to introduce students, of all ages, to safe, educational, and life-changing outdoor experiences.

DAEE Acknowledges the importance of conservation actions needed to sustain future resources and encourages every citizen to be aware of how their individual actions directly impact the natural resources that sustain them. DAEE’s annual conference provides insight for community leaders, educators, and citizens on how to learn about the environment, conservation methods, best practices in environmental education, sustainability initiatives, and opportunities for individuals to make a difference in their communities.

Current Initiatives 

  • Opportunities for professional development and networking among formal and non-formal educators in the area of environmental and conservation education
  • Information and expertise on selected programs (i.e. schoolyard habitats, outdoor learning centers, etc.)
  • An environment education provider directory
  • A yearly conference, which includes the annual meeting of DAEE
  • A web site and social media outlets to promote and share information about environmental education opportunities
  • A DAEE e-mail database
