Why give to MEEA: What others have to say

{I choose to give to MEEA because I really believe in environmental education. MEEA is one way to reach out to teachers and offer encouragement and resources that are needed for teachers to easily incorporate both environmental education and teaching outdoors with what they are required to teach. And if we want a population in the future that cares for the environment, we need to connect youth with nature now, and educate them about how natural systems work and how to be supportive of them.

{I choose to give to MEEA because they are working on ways to help inspire our young people to both understand and connect with nature. We are part of nature and if our future leaders and citizens understand this on a personal level, they are more likely to cherish and protect our natural resources.

{I chose to support MEEA because I have a passion for teaching kids about nature, the outdoors, and how they can responsibly impact preserving and sustaining this planet. I believe MEEA supports teachers by providing links to workshops, conferences, grants, professional resources, and networking. I also love the wonderful monthly coloring sheets that are a part of the newsletter.

{MEEA is a phenomenal resource for educators, providing a fantastic foundation for present needs and a powerful thrust to prepare for future demands. However, MEEA’s best quality is the community of educators—both formal and informal—who circulate ideas and methods in a fabulous network. I always receive a strong dose of inspiration when I participate in a MEEA event.
