We believe, together we can do more. As a sponsor, YOU can be a charging stations that powers up learning and enhances skills that will help Coloradans care for our world and sustain it for future generations. The educators who build environmental and outdoor learning experiences require strong supports, just as those engaged in a construction project require scaffolding to do their job efficiently and well. For environmental and outdoor educators, opportunities like the Colorado Advancing Environmental Education Conference are essential to be effective. When you support our outdoor and environmental educators, they can provide the types of integrated learning experiences that prepare our society for whatever the future brings.
