Welcome to AEEA!

AEEA is a networking and information based organization that works with educators, students, business, government, and the general public to increase the awareness and knowledge about the environment.

AEEA works with environmental education (EE) providers to promote programs and increase capacity building of EE programs in Arkansas. Information is provided through AEEA's newsletter, The Natural State, meetings and workshops, and the biennial EE Expo.

AEEA is the only statewide network of environmental educators. By promoting EE we have a more environmentally literate public which provides a better understanding on how we keep Arkansas the Natural State. AEEA's purpose is to promote and advocate for environmental education which incorporates a number of disciplines including conservation and natural resource education.

AEEA is proud to serve as the Arkansas affiliate of the North America Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE). The Affiliate Network promotes collaboration for maximum effectiveness and efficiency and a unified voice for Environmental Education across North America and beyond."

The Arkansas Environmental Education Association (AEEA) is pleased to present an updated edition of the Arkansas Environmental Education Resource Directory.

The process of collecting information for the directory consisted of contacting numerous local, state and federal agencies, universities, organizations, and individuals to submit information on environmental education programs that they offer in Arkansas.

It is our hope that this directory will inspire and prompt others to submit environmental education programs and resources for future updates.
