Support The 2024 Let's Grow Together Campaign!

Environmental education integrates the natural world and meaningful outdoor experiences using evidence-driven, research-backed methods to develop students’ knowledge of concepts we all need to understand: how natural systems work, how to interact responsibly with our environment, and how we can protect natural resources for future generations. Environmental educators are using gardens, nature centers, creeks, and other sites across North Carolina to help learners of all ages to be healthier, happier, smarter, and better stewards of the environment.

Learners of all ages, from infancy through adulthood, can benefit from the connection to and understanding of our environments that comes from environmental education. Implementing environmental education into every school day can build the foundation for lifelong engagement.

This spring, the Environmental Educators of North Carolina are asking you to join us in supporting our community of environmental education programs across the state.

Through the 2024 Let’s Grow Together Campaign, we’re working to raise funds and draw attention to five amazing organizations who are working to make North Carolina - and its environment - a better place! Last year's inaugural Let's Grow Together Campaign was a wonderful success, and we're excited to build on that momentum in this second year.

Our partners for this year's initiative include The Agape Center for Environmental Education (Fuquay-Varina), The Broad River Greenway (Cleveland County), Flora and Fauna Festivities (Sandhills), Longleaf Learning Collective (Triangle), and Science Across NC (statewide).

EENC is proud to promote the important work of our members serving public communities, schools, campers, and professionals across NC," notes Nikki Jones, Interim Executive Director of the Environmental Educators of North Carolina. "Many North Carolinians experience their formative nature connections through unique local opportunities developed by smaller organizations. With this collaborative campaign, we highlight growing organizations and high-impact initiatives that bring meaningful learning to our neighbors, communities, and future leaders." 

Donate today to help us reach our $8500 collective goal by May 31st!
