To ensure that our educators are knowledgeable of the latest education curriculum and resources, we encourage them to attend conferences around the state. Not only do they gain valuable insight into making their programs better, they also have a chance to connect with others in the environmental field. Some of the conferences they have attended in the past include the Environmental Education Association of Oregon’s Environmental Education Conference, The State of the Beaver, the Environmental Law Conference, the Coastal Ecology of Wetlands education weekend, and Winter Wings.
We are always looking for more opportunities and resources for our educators. If you know of something that may be of interest, please contact the chair of the Education Committee, Ken Carloni.
