FE3: Facilitating Environmental Education Excellence -- NEW!!!
We are glad to announce a new professional development opportunity available to formal and informal educators, alike.  This new workshop focuses on the topical integration of environmental education in the classroom as a supportive structure for the implementation of Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core curriculum.  Through a five hour workshop, a collection of our resources are demonstrated to illustrate the integration of classroom content to cross cutting themes and outcomes.  We focus on the use of these materials to support classroom curriculum and the field experience.  Educators participate in activities which strengthen real world applications for their students.  Workshops are arranged by contacting any of the state coordinators listed below.
