April 22 - 24, 2021

The Conference Is Complete: Registration is now closed



We have had to re-evaluate the pandemic and, seeing the challenges many organizations still have with budgets, we made the decision to go virtual for our Conference.  

Join us April 22-24, 2021 as we celebrate our roots in EE as we grow forward!  Our LEEF virtual conference will be celebrating 40 years since our first meeting.  Learn about the amazing work across the state showcasing longer term EE projects or programs, innovative environmental education during the pandemic, and efforts emphasizing justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. Thank you to our sponsors Florida Gulf Coast Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education and the Ocean Conservancy. We're excited to announce that Dr. Marty Main from the University of Florida and Ray Coleman from Florida Atlantic University will be our keynote speakers.

*Please note that if you registered for a previous conference that was cancelled due to Covid, you may have a balance on your account that can be used for this conference. Follow the following instructions to take advantage of this option:

  • Log in as a LEEF Member (very important!!!)

  • Click to Register for the conference

(You will notice your overpayment down in the bottom right of your screen)

  • Cross your fingers and click Register; if everything goes the way it should, your registration fee will be deducted automatically from your overpayment balance!

If it does not deduct automatically:

  • Go back one screen using the back arrow and click on View/Pay Invoice

  • You may get a message that asks you to click on the invoices you want to activate; if necessary, click on the invoice for the overpayment amount as well as the invoice for the new registration. Sometimes this entire step is done automatically!

  • Click Settle (Fingers still crossed?), and your registration will be confirmed. You will notice that your overpayment amount has decreased by the new registration deduction.

If none of this works, contact Vicki Crisp, Treasurer@leef-florida.org, for assistance.
