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.
