Association for Environmental & Outdoor education
Our mission is to advance the impact of environmental and outdoor education in California
AEOE hosts three conferences each year, two fall regional conferences in northern and southern California, and the spring statewide. AEOE's conferences offer opportunities for networking, professional development, and connection. They are typically held Friday evening through Sunday lunch and include workshops, speakers, award ceremonies, entertainment, and more. Lodging and meals are offered onsite and both camping and dorm or cabin accommodations are available.
AEOE's statewide conference is our signature event. Rotating through organizational member's sites in northern and southern California, the annual conference draws 300+ participants for a weekend of learning and fun.
