This year’s theme brings us back to the basics of environmental education…Nature! Children are spending less and less time outdoors, both at home and at school. Yet there are more and more resources and programs dedicated to reversing this trend. Environmental Education is quietly regaining a foothold in K-12 education and teachers, students, parents, and administrators are taking notice. Whether it’s increased class time outside, project-based learning that focuses on the environment, citizen science, STEM, or environmental careers, things are changing. This year’s theme helps support the basics of Environmental Education by offering strands that help educators in all settings learn more about nature and how to utilize nature in their lessons, programs and projects.


Conference strands include:

  • Natural History
  • Using the Outdoors as a Classroom
  • Citizen Science
  • Environmental Careers
  • Program and Learner Assessment

The EECO Annual Conference will take place at Deer Creek State Park Lodge, 22300 State Park Road 20, Mt. Sterling, OH 43143.  Contact the Lodge at 1-800-282-7275 to book a room.  Be sure to indicate that you're with the EECO conference to get the $89/night rate.  This rate is available until February 26th.  Contact Deer Creek Lodge directly for additional information about lodging.
