Have you heard? In April, KAEE launched a dynamic monthly webinar series geared toward formal and non-formal environmental educators and enthusiasts. Featuring a wide variety of presenters and topics, the aim of this series is to educate, inspire, and help connect KAEE members and friends with available and relevant environmental education resources and ideas.
The programs will typically be hosted on the third Thursday of each month and registration is required. Webinars are free for KAEE members and only $10 for non-members. Sessions are also recorded so members and paid registrants can view at a later date if desired.
Last month, the series was off to a great start with a session featuring the important connections between nature and mental health. The presentation was given by one of KAEE’s long time members and supporters, Amanda Patrick, MA. We looked at research and innovative ideas around the value of connecting individuals and communities with the outdoors.
On May 20th at 3:00 pm EST, we will host an exciting presentation all about global research and university partnerships that can be useful right here at home! We hope you can join us. Click here to register.
Did you know? Many scientific research groups at universities are in need of organizations like nature centers and schools to help them fulfill their missions of having broader impacts and meaningful outreach opportunities.
Join Nicholas Teets with the University of Kentucky's Department of Entomology, and Deborah Harner, science educator and National Science Foundation grant team member as they guide us on a journey into experiential-based funding opportunities.
Take an incredible voyage to the south pole as these educators share examples of how to expand your audience's understanding of environmental science through global exploration and research projects.
They will share information about their research abroad and how to make local connections and impact through associated outreach programs. Learn how to inspire your audiences by delving into the possibilities of partnerships between university research groups and your environmental education programs!
