2018 West Slope EE Conference

 Registration is closed for this event


October 5, 2018
9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Steamboat Springs

Co-Hosted by Yampatika

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.  

In environmental education, we teach about systems all the time. We teach about natural systems, human systems and how those systems interact. But how often do we think about the systems that shape how we teach? Knowing how to “see” and uncover systems helps us to ask great questions about why we do the things we do, and how we can continue to improve. Join us to explore environmental education through a lens of systems thinking.
