Founded in 1977 and now one of the oldest state environmental education groups, PAEE continues to change, grow, and learn through the work of its members and leaders.

The Pennsylvania Association of Environmental Educators empowers people to build an environmentally engaged community. We are a pivotal organization in supporting a healthy, vibrant, and resilient PA where all community members live in respect and harmony with the natural world.
