Thanks you for your patience as we worked to finalize the details of the 2018 EENC Conference, in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. We are happy to announce the new location is the Millennium Hotel in Durham!
They are located at 2800 Campus Walk Avenue; near Duke University and just 10 minutes from downtown Durham. See pictures and learn more on their website. We are very thankful to them for helping us plan a conference in a week!
Now that the conference is taking place in Durham, we have decided to open registration for a very limited time. If you know someone who was not registered but wanted to come, registration will be open until Monday, Sept. 24th, at Noon.
All of the hotel rooms at Millennium were recently renovated. Most of the rooms available to us have two queen beds. The cost for a room is $129 per night plus taxes. This is the same rate we had at DoubleTree Atlantic Beach. The room rate is available from Wednesday, September 26 to Saturday, September 29.
Call 919-383-8575 to make a reservation. Tell them you are with Environmental Educators of North Carolina. You must book your hotel by Wednesday, September 26. You will need to make a despot of one nights stay. The deposit is refundable if the hotel received notice of an individual's cancellation by 4 pm EST on the day of arrival.
Workshop and Field Trips
The Thursday workshop- Why Inclusion Matters for your Teaching, Programs, and Facility is on as scheduled! As people cancel we also might have some spaces open. If you are interested in attending, please complete the registration form. You will be put on a list and notified early next week if you are in. You will not be asked to pay for the workshop until your arrival.
Of course, the original Thursday field trips have been cancelled. However, since we are close to a lot of awesome places in Durham we are working on some new field trips. We owe a huge thanks to our wonderful partners and sponsors who are helping make this all possible! Field trips will be offered for FREE on a first-come, first served sign-up at the registration desk. You’ll be able to choose from the following options (and potentially more!!):
- AM program at Duke Gardens
- Full day exploration at the Museum of Life + Science
- PM Hike at Eno River State Park
- PM Tour at Duke Lemur Center
- PM Tour at The Hub Farm
All field trips will include lunch at the hotel, and will be drive-yourself (or find/make friends and carpool!). We’re working on exact times and final details - but we’ll have all the information at the desk when registration opens at 7:30 am. So come early on Thursday to explore, potentially earn some criteria II if you need it, and get some recharge time in nature with other educators!
