“Education in the environment. Education about the environment. Education for the environment.”
This idea, presented by environmental education (EE) champion Dr. Terry Wilson, kicked off the Kentucky Association for Environmental Education’s annual Outdoor Learning Symposium, held on June 18 at Lexington’s Frederick Douglass High School. More than 40 educators, administrators, and EE professionals from around the state spent the day in workshops focused on advice and educational tools to help teachers gain the skills and confidence needed to effectively engage their students in environmental education lessons.

Registration information and all the details about our 2020 Outdoor Learning Symposium is coming soon. As in the past, the symposium will be designed with a specific audience in mind; we invite K-12 administrator AND teacher teams to attend, learn, and earn. Teams may consist of more than one teacher, but there must be an administrator (principal, curriculum coach, etc.) in order to register.
The cost is always free, but the return is worth far more than what you'll pay for it. Lunch is provided, EILA credits are available for administrators, as well as PD credit for teachers. Join us for an amazing day of networking and planning with fellow teachers, administrators, and community partners!
A special thanks to all who attended the event in 2019!
