Environmental Educators of North Carolina emerged out of the need and desire of individuals to meet and share their experiences, aspirations, and tools in order to bring the most excellent environmental education experiences to the citizens of North Carolina. However, since its inception in 1990 it has grown into something much greater.  EENC represents a network of outstanding environmental educators, individuals, and organizations who work together to accomplish EENC's core mission: to promote excellence in professional development and facilitate networking opportunities, inspiring educators to create an environmentally literate citizenry.  EENC’s vision is to connect diverse professionals and organizations to each other and to high quality environmental education materials and programs, demonstrating leadership in North Carolina and beyond.  Why get involved with EENC ...  because everyone can benefit from environmental education.  So get in touch, get involved, and connect with us to help make North Carolina and our environment a better place.
