Rivers Run Through It
Our annual conference
brings together all environmental education (EE) stakeholders to
initiate collaboration and to celebrate Progress.
At EECO it is our mission to be a leader in the
promotion and facilitation of environmental Education, and to
nurture knowledge, ideas and
engagement that meet the needs of practitioners and
audiences. Additionally EECO fosters
the development of partnerships among EE individuals,
organizations, agencies and districts.
This year’s theme recognizes the importance of rivers to our
state. Southern Ohio
is unique in its landscape and history,
The Ohio River provided a corridor for transportation for Native
Americans and settlers, as well as a boundary through which
slaves crossed on their way to freedom.The land produces a diversity of flora and fauna not seen
in other parts of Ohio. What better place
to reconnect with our natural world.
The conference theme is
divided into strands.Each strand is meant to encourage
participants from different interests and backgrounds to gain
new knowledge and information pertinent to
their area of education.
for sessions should address one or more strands in order to make
the session informative to as many
participants as possible.
