Next month the Environmental Education Collaborative (EEC) of the Inland Empire will host its second annual symposium at The Living Desert in Palm Desert, CA.
The EEC formed in February 2015 when over 125 organizations participated in a strategic planning meeting near downtown Riverside. Quite a bit was accomplished during this one-day meeting and the Environmental Education Collaborative has grown steadily during its first year.
The EEC is lead by co-chairs Dave Ficke, Region 10 Coordinator of the California Regional Environmental Education Community, and Ginger Greaves, Executive Director of the Santa Rosa Plateau Nature Education Foundation. The purpose of the Collaborative is to:
- Bring funding to the Inland Empire to increase environmental literacy in San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
- Develop a network of environmental education resources.
- Promote the programs of environmental education providers in the Inland Empire.
- Monitor and influence environmental education policy in San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
