National Environmental Education Week 2022 and Beyond 01/24/2022

EE Week is changing! Instead of limiting our focus to a handful of days in late April, we have decided to spread our EE offerings throughout the year.

This means we can align our EE offerings with a traditional school year schedule - making it more intuitive for educators to incorporate environmental education into their lesson plans.
