WHO WE ARE
The Idaho Environmental Education Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is dedicated to the advancement of environmental education in Idaho. We support and promote the activities of all educators working to clarify our understanding of the natural world and our role in it.
Hello Idaho Educators!
IdEEA has been undergoing some changes and we are energized about our new direction. We are updating our offerings by creating unique, place-based, professional development opportunities for educators that ignite passion, and hopefully fit into your schedule!
Rather than hosting our annual conference (which we loved!), IdEEA is creating opportunities for educators to learn from each other in the field. Instead of convening EE providers just once a year, we’ll provide opportunities for us to connect on a more regular basis, and to inspire each other to do better. In short, we are positioning IdEEA to become Idaho’s network for environmental educators. Initially our offerings will be mostly based in SW Idaho, but if our new model proves successful, we hope to scale across the state.
In a fast-changing world, environmental education is taking on more importance than ever. Not only are we challenged to connect people to the natural world, we also need to prepare the next generation to understand science and what it can (and cannot) tell us about our world. In this age of information, it’s more important than ever to connect people to place. To be effective at what we do, we must maintain our own drive and enthusiasm and we want to use IdEEA to inspire that passion! We hope you’ll join us as we explore how we teach about the environment.
