Announcing Writer Janisse Ray as Keynote Speaker!
We are excited to have JANISSE RAY as our keynote speaker for the 2015 EEA Annual Conference. Janisse is an award-winning writer, naturalist and environmental activist. Her notable works include Ecology of a Cracker Childhood and Drifting into Darien. These novels interweave narratives about life in rural southern Georgia with in-depth information about the ecology and natural history of the region. Ms. Ray will also be conducting a book signing on Friday, so bring your copy or plan to purchase one from her at the conference. Cash or check only please for book purchase.
'Spring into Action' is the theme of our 2015 Annual EEA conference. Sessions will focus on one of these four conference strands:
Grow: Gardening and pollinators, schoolyard habitats, Monarchs Across Georgia, Farm to School programs, etc.
Citizen Science: Hands-on service projects that serve scientists with mass data collection
Project-based Environmental Stewardship: Empowering kids to solve real-world problems and implement their solutions (habitat restoration, watershed stewardship, bio-remediation, wildlife conservation, alternative energy, climate change mitigation)
Tools of Action: Environmental Education administrative tools (evaluation, best practices, engaging visitors, planning and design, professional development)

EEA Store and Silent Auction:
This year we will have several vendors bringing their skilled arts and products to supplement the teacher resources at the EEA STORE. Jewelry, cards, plants, books, soaps, candles just to name a few…The EEA STORE will be open all day on Friday. Another shopping opportunity, the EEA SILENT AUCTION, is where you will find delicious “sips”, one-of-a-kind items and other great steals. The silent auction will close after the morning session on Saturday.
The funds raised from these ventures go to provide scholarships and grants to environmental educators throughout the state. Come prepared—the EEA Store and Silent Auction will accept cash, checks and credit cards.
