Student Experiential and Environmental Education Conference at Touch of Nature

Greetings Friends and Colleagues,

I hope all is well with you in the new year. Here at Touch of Nature we’re gearing up for another season of connecting people to the planet. In that endeavor we have put together a conference for those interested in Environmental and Experiential education called SEEEC. A conference intended to bring together students, formal and non-formal educators, and environmental education professionals. It is a reasonably priced conference with very reasonably priced certifications in Flying Wild and Project Learning Tree certification programs, concurrent sessions, and field trips.

PLEASE spread the word to anyone (including your list serves if appropriate) or departments/administrators you know may be interested both at SIU and beyond. More information and registration can be found at the Touch of Nature website

Any help spreading the word, volunteering (yourself or others) for outreach or committees would be greatly appreciated. We do have some openings for workshop presentations if you or someone you know is interested in presenting, our presenter form is also attached here.

Thank you.
