JOIN US FOR THE 2017 PAEE CONFERENCE
'Deepening Connections, Inspiring Innovation'
Registration is now open for the 2017 PAEE Conference on March 13th & 14th at the McKeever Environmental Learning Center, and the pre-conference Project WET Facilitator Workshop on March 12. McKeever is the perfect location for Deepening Connections, Inspiring Innovation because it features nature-friendly facilities and miles of wooded trails to take workshops outdoors and to explore during breaks. The bunkhouses provide a fun and affordable on-site lodging option, or separate arrangements can be made at nearby hotels for a reduced conference rate. Visit the lodging and accommodations page to learn more. Information about conference scholarships can be found at the bottom of the registration page.
We hope that you will join us at the conference and help to keep alive the PAEE conference tradition of building community, deepening connections to nature and sharing innovative teaching practices.
