2017 West Slope EE Conference

West Slope Summit


Friday, September 8th, 2017

9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

University Center

Western State Colorado University

Gunnison, CO


Join environmental education (EE) providers and supporters from agencies, nonprofits, schools, and environmental, nature, and conservation fields to network, share ideas, and find inspiration from innovative EE leaders.


How do we create inclusive, culturally relevant environmental education experiences for schools and communities across the Western Slope? How do we help students develop the tools to put their emerging environmental literacy into action?


Join us to explore the newly released National Guidelines for Excellence in Community Engagement, published by the North American Association for Environmental Education. Engage in participant driven discussions and sessions to explore the topics of most interest in advancing inclusive, culturally relevant environmental education.

We will convene at the University Center at Western State Colorado University for the morning and if weather permits, we will travel to the ColdHarbour Institute for an outdoor lunch and afternoon discussion and activities.

We invite you to come early and join us for a tentative campfire scheduled at the ColdHarbour Institute on Thursday evening before the Conference at 7p.m.  More details coming soon.
