    2020 Environmental Educator Certification Program

    Environmental Educator Certification Program (EECP)

    The Environmental Educator Certification Program (EECP) draws together stewards and educators of the environment into a structured and effective initiative. Certification is a public declaration that a certain individual meets a stringent level of requirements and has a specific set of skills. We believe this program will be of great benefit to practitioners and organizations alike, extending to individuals, the public, and the profession itself. Having the EECP enhances the legitimacy of the field by building a uniform foundation in effectively teaching about the environment in California. 

    Through participating in the certification program, you will increase your knowledge and skills, expand your professional network, enhance your resume, and make important connections across the state.  

    Participants may only enroll in EECP if they have been accepted into the program and have paid the $25 application fee. If this applies to you, check you inbox, as you will need the code in order to enroll.

    Conference Theme: Perspectives

    Note: While we remain hopeful that we can convene in-person this spring, we recognize that this may not be possible. We plan to communicate either way in early 2021. 

    The spring statewide conference is AEOE's signature event. Our annual statewide conference brings together several hundred environmental and outdoor education professionals from across California to participate in professional learning workshops, a job fair, and networking opportunities.  

    Enjoy the evening entertainment, showcase your skills at the an open mic, and bid on an item at our auction (the proceeds of which benefit AEOE, allowing us to provide scholarships to future conferences!). 

    “I appreciated the information I learned at the workshops. It was wonderful being with outdoor educators who truly care about their job and learning more.”
