SPECIAL eNEWS ANNOUNCEMENT: 2012 EE Symposium – PRESENTERS LINE-UP

We are excited to announce the PRESENTERS LINE-UP for the 2012 Environmental Education Symposium on Saturday, March 10th! The presenters were meticulously selected to insure a premium environmental education experience. We’ll offer a variety of hand-on sessions, lesson demonstrations, and exemplary programs catering to formal (K-12) and informal educators. Please browse our presenters line-up in the attached document.

Grasping moments in the outdoors is such a personal experience…we take in the smells, sounds, and mood of the surroundings. In the spirit of the conference theme, The Year of Outdoor Education, we are committed to bringing the outdoors in during this event. Therefore, it’s time to pull out those scrapbooks! We are looking to use a variety of pictures showcasing YOUR outdoor activities in a surprise conference project. If you have pictures of you, your families, and/or your students releasing butterflies, playing around the playground, swimming in a lake, planting a tree, etc. that you would like to share, please send a digital copy (limit 3) to Juliet Raffray, Environmental Education Assistant Coordinator, at jraffray@wlf.la.gov. We cannot guarantee that we will use every photo submitted but we will try! Deadline for submitting pictures: February 23rd.
