Any educator incorporating environmental issues in their classes or programs is an environmental educator.
Environmental education is a cross-cutting field, spanning subject areas like STEM, the humanities, and the arts.
Our 200+ members work in diverse settings, including: schools, nature centers, zoos, youth organizations, science research stations, and universities.
Excellence in education requires excellent educators.
