The League of Environmental Educators in Florida is the statewide professional association for educators interested in teaching about the environment. We are the Florida affiliate of the national EE group, the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE). Our members and volunteer board work together to share the tools, skills, and resources needed to support and advance environmental education in our state. At a LEEF conference, you can expect to meet other educators and listen to speakers on a range of topics. Our conferences are ideal for classroom and home school teachers, employees at nature centers and parks, post-secondary students and faculty, and others interested in Florida's environment.
