8th Annual State-wide Environmental Education Conference 

INSPIRED BY NATURE, WHEREVER YOU ARE!

 

If you attended last year’s conference you know this is a group who loves to have fun, learn about environmental resources, and be inspired by nature! Whether you are a teacher, a non-formal educator, a parent, or member of the community, the DAEE annual conference is the place to be inspired! 

 

The DAEE Annual Conference is day of networking, professional development, sharing, and hands-on experiences. Throughout the day we explore Environmental Education (EE) opportunities, resources, best practices, and local issues to help increase our connection with nature for this and future generations.  Keynote speaker, Phung Luu with Animal Behaviors and Conservation Connections will surely set us off in the right direction with an inspiring wildlife encounter.  Additionally, we are excited to announce the location of this year’s conference at the new campus of the Pilot School! The campus was designed to utilize the outdoor environment and incorporate nature in many innovative ways including a living roof and large saltwater pool. The location itself is a must see, an inspiration in itself.  

 

The success of this conference relies on a diverse and robust selection of presentations. For that we need your help! 

 

Four strands have been developed for the 8th Annual Conference to provide a focus for presentations and engage a broad spectrum of participants. Presentations will take place during four, 50-minute sessions over the course of the day with options for single, extended or double session presentations.  Presenters are expected to register for the conference at a reduced fee of $25. Lunch will be provided.

 

Submission deadline for proposals is Friday, December 16th 2016
