The Pennsylvania Association of Environmental Educators (PAEE) welcomes proposals for workshops
and presentations for its annual March conference. Motivated by our Pocono setting, this year’s theme
explores excellence in EE, or “peak experiences.” What examples of excellence—programs, events,
courses, curricula, etc.—can you share with PA’s EE community?

Ideals workshops are interactive, engaging, and relevant to multiple members of the environmental
education community. We encourage you to go beyond PowerPoint, using experiential and hands-on
techniques. Presenters receive a 10% discount on conference registration!
