Dear Olivia,
Please join us in Wiscasset, Maine on Friday, March 22, 2013 for Maine Environmental Education Association's (MEEA) Annual Conference! Based on the discussions at last year's conference, this year's theme is focused on how our individual stories connect us and impact our collective work in promoting environmental literacy for the future. In sharing our stories, current trends in education and outdoor recreation and related research, we seek to bring together professionals from across sectors to explore our histories, build connections and find new opportunities for collaboration.    
See the exciting strands for this year's conference below. In the hopes of continuing to expand the scope of environmental education, we hope that you share this invitation with someone who might not normally receive MEEA notices.  We look forward to building a partnership with you in March!

  1. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your blog. You have some really great posts and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested. Many thanks!
