Imagine a Maine where EVERY child has opportunities to experience nature.  A Maine where children are empowered to transform their natural experiences into action.  A Maine where youth from diverse backgrounds are provided access to nature and the tools to learn to think critically about complex natural issues and challenges, and are supported in finding solutions and creating the change they want to see in their own communities.  Imagine a state that recognizes the value of  environmental education (EE)and that best practices identified for EE also translate to teaching best practices and are utilized as a tool to assist in  transforming educational practice K-12.  We at MEEA KNOW this is what the future  of environmental education in Maine.


The Maine Environmental Education Association (MEEA) is committed to building healthy, resilient, sustainable communities in Maine and supports the work of all educators who are using nature and the out-of-doors in teaching and learning.  

Goals & Objectives

MEEA's role in the state is to connect educators with one another, to facilitate collaborations, raise funds to support the powerful work taking place, share research with practitioners, advocate for change, and to encourage and develop leaders who propel forward the field of environmental education.  MEEA is the direct link for professionals in the state to learn about the cutting edge work in the filed happening at the regional and national level.
