MAEE strengthens the role of education as a solution to our environmental and societal challenges.

We serve environmental education (EE) professionals, students, K-12 educators, and their allies in Minnesota through:

  • Coordinating professional development and networking opportunities through conferences and other events
  • Acknowledging successful EE programs and professionals with EE Awards
  • Supporting legislation, partnership and programming that advances EE at the state, regional and national level
  • Empowering our members with the resources they need

MEEC Conference

MAEE will not be hosting a conference in 2015. We encourage everyone to attend the Midwest Environmental Education Conference in Madison, WI from October 21-24. We will be arranging carpooling from the Twin Cities for everyone interested in riding together. Learn more about the MEEC Conference here!


Passion is Contagious
There’s a lot going on in the world of environmental education these days. As I sit here writing this blog post, it’s hard to pinpoint a direction to focus on. There are so many important decisions being made in regards to our natural world, from the legislature down to our local governments. How do we, as citizens make the right choices?
Read the blog here.

Every month guest bloggers share their stories, resources, and insights into the world of environmental education. Read the blog here. Do you have a story to share? Send in a short entry for the MAEE blog! Share stories from the field, highlight an organization or educator that has influenced you, or feature a resource that's been helpful. Contact Callie Recknagel with ideas.
