Environmental educators are part of a diverse group of professionals dedicated to enhancing lifelong learning. It is our collective challenge and honor to increase environmental literacy, encourage love of outdoors, teach meaningful environmental content to youth and adults of all ages and inspire environmental stewards to contribute to healthier, environmentally sustainable communities.  How can we address the large scale challenge of providing relevant environmental education that will inspire change and create solutions to a diverse audience? How can we encourage creative collaborations to expand opportunities?  Join us as we explore what drives individual and collective involvement of environmental action through natural science, psychology, art, advocacy, faith, mindfulness, research, spirituality and media.  Come discover common paths that benefit our world through environmental education.

On Sunday, November 6, the Connecticut Outdoor and Environmental Education Association will hold a luncheon for our Annual Meeting at the Wisdom House. We welcome and encourage all members of our organization to join us as we share our year in review, vote on a new slate of board members, and reflect on an amazing few days at the NEEEA conference.

Connecticut Outdoor and Environmental Education Association is a network of classroom educators, naturalists, environmental educators, youth leaders, administrators, professors, and students who work toward a future where increasingly:

  • An appreciation for and understanding of the environment is an integral part of all community education – including formal, non-formal, and informal education;
  • Educators, environmental professionals, and the organizations and agencies they represent are well informed and are willing to work together to maximize resources; and
  • People of all ages are environmentally literate and act as environmental stewards.

COEEA serves its members by supporting professional development, providing networking opportunities, and promoting environmental education in Connecticut.

COEEA Fund is a 501 (c) 3 organization. We are also the state affiliate of the New England Environmental Education Alliance and the North American Association for Environmental Education.
