Group Description

The Rhode Island Environmental Education Association is a group of people committed to environmentally oriented education.

The membership includes teachers, naturalists, environmental organizations, and educators from universities, recreation centers, and state, federal, and non-profit agencies.

Environmental Education is the process of developing citizens who are knowledgeable and concerned about their natural and human-designed environment, and their inter-relationship with it. In addition, Environmental Education seeks to foster citizens who are aware of their responsibility toward the environment; who are competent to participate in environmental problem-solving decisions; and who are motivated to work toward solutions of environmental problems.

Our Purpose Is…
- To encourage and promote effective Environmental Education in formal and informal settings;
- To provide a forum for members to study, discuss, and make recommendations regarding the environmental education needs of the state;
- To develop public understanding of environmental problems;
- To initiate and sponsor Environmental Education programs and services;
- To gather and disseminate information on environmental concerns.
