    Dear Environmental Education Providers, Partners and Stakeholders,

     We would like to invite you to participate in an exciting project we are launching in partnership with the Southeastern Environmental Education Alliance to conduct a comprehensive landscape analysis of environmental education in the southeast states.  We would appreciate your time in sharing and/or filling out the following survey designed for environmental education programs and service providers by Friday, April 2nd.  

    Organizations that respond will be listed as part of a state and regional landscape of environmental education programs and services. This analysis will take a comprehensive look at the scope of environmental education offerings available, trends in the field, and operational shifts.  By better understanding the important work being done in the southeast, we can identify gaps and barriers to access, as well as opportunities for service providers to partner with one another to advance our collective efforts toward environmental literacy.   

    For this phase of the project, we are focused primarily on environmental education program and service providers. Questions relate to organizational operations, audiences served, programming themes, and services to better understand environmental education and engagement in the southeast. This survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.  This is a two-part survey.  After you complete the first part of the survey, you will have the opportunity to complete a survey of each of your individual programs or to group these into one survey.  

    Support for this project was provided by grants from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the Pisces Foundation.

    The Southeastern Environmental Education Alliance is a partnership of the following organizations: Environmental Education Association of Alabama (EEAA), Environmental Education Alliance (EEA) of Georgia, League of Environmental Educators in Florida (LEEF), Kentucky Association for Environmental Education (KAEE), Mississippi Environmental Education Alliance (MEEA), Environmental Educators of North Carolina (EENC), Environmental Education Association of South Carolina (EEASC), and the Tennessee Environmental Education Association (TEEA).

    Thank you, 

    Terran McGinnis
    Executive Director
    League of Environmental Educators in Florida (LEEF)
