More about CAEE and the Excellence in Environmental Education Awards:
Each year CAEE recognizes and honors individuals, organizations and schools throughout Colorado for their innovation and dedication to moving the field of environmental education forward.
Environmental education (EE) is a life-long learning process that increases awareness about the environment and its systems while developing critical-thinking skills that enable responsible decision-making. Environmental Education can be inter-disciplinary and take place in a variety of settings, such as schools, parks, city neighborhoods, community gardens, businesses, higher education, media, zoos, museums, faith institutions, and more. Award nominees may also identify their work as sustainability, stewardship, STEM, interpretation, outdoor education/leadership, youth development, environmental justice, community-based/engagement, conservation, green schools etc.
Nominations are reviewed by CAEE’s Award Selection Committee and Board of Directors. Nominees will receive a notification of their status in December. Award recognition takes place at the annual awards celebration event to be held on Saturday, March 16th in Denver.
Office Hours: Tuesday-Thursday 9-4 and Friday 9-2
CAEE’s mission is to advance environmental education in Colorado by fostering collaboration, mobilizing support, and driving excellence.
