National Environmental Education Week

April 13-19, 2008
The National Environmental Education Foundation invites any forestry organizations involved in K-12 education to participate in this year’s EE Week festivities. If your organization conducts classroom visits, field trips, or service learning opportunities with K-12 students, you can register your events and gain national exposure for your work.

EE Week, made possible by Canon USA, promotes understanding and protection of the natural world by actively engaging K-12th grade students and educators of all subjects in an inspired week of environmental learning and service before Earth Day. To date, over 1,000 schools, nature centers, zoos, museums, and aquariums from around the country have pledged to implement EE Week activities, and you can join them!
This year EE Week 2008 will focus on a special Carbon Footprints theme. Participants will have access to a wide variety of FREE environmental education resources, including:
* Standards-based environmental education lessons and activities including a forestry curricula library;
* Monthly electronic newsletters that highlight the latest EE curricula, professional development, and funding opportunities;
* Opportunities for online communication and knowledge-sharing with educators from across the country, including a special EE Week Photo Blog.
