How do we ensure all Colorado children are engaged in outdoor learning experiences? Appreciation for nature, the great outdoors, conservation and sound environmental stewardship don’t just happen. They are the result of positive experiences and good information and education. In this episode, we hear from two environmental education leaders who are providing these experiences and education for the children of Colorado. Environmental education across the state of Colorado and getting kids learning outside can support our sustainability goals.
Katie Navin, executive director of the Colorado
Alliance for Environmental Education, shares information about
updating the Colorado Environmental Education Plan, as well as two
important pieces of legislation. Christopher Aaby, executive
director of Catamount Institute, fills us in on the excellent youth
education programs provided by the Catamount Institute as well as a
few other programs.
