20160707_092155Regional EE Meeting

Recently, I had the opportunity to attend a networking event for those who support environmental education providers in Rocky Mountain and Plains states (SD, ND, WY, CO, UT, MT). This was a day and a half of inspiration. My goal was to reconnect with and revitalize environmental education in South Dakota and I can report out mission accomplished.

Beyond that, we decided that working on a regional basis had benefit and value. To this end we will be more intentional about networking. If you go to the EECSD Facebook page, you will see cross postings from other regional EE groups. This is part of our effort to connect and support our work. Please like and share to keep the news moving forward.

NEEAC Report

At one of our sessions, we heard from Dr. Kelly Keena who participated in the National Environmental Education Advisory Council (NEEAC). The role of NEEAC is to assess the status of environmental education in the United States. You can read the most recent report to EPA Adminstrator McCarthy here: 2015NEEACReport_final (2)
