February Celebrations and Updates


Let's Celebrate! In February...

  • We welcomed our first members in Richmond County! Welcome, Brittany and Adam Smith of Flora & Fauna Festivities, LLC – thank you for joining our community as a Bronze Organizational Member.

"Environmental education is vital because without a fundamental understanding of the intricate processes and relationships that shape our planet, it's challenging to truly appreciate the invaluable contributions of Mother Nature to our lives. This understanding is crucial not only for children but also for adults, as environmental education empowers individuals of all ages to have the knowledge necessary to make informed decisions." - Brittany Smith, Flora & Fauna Festivities

  • We welcomed our first member in Craven County! Welcome, Somer Peede of the Coastal Environmental Partnership! Thank you for joining our community as a New to EE Member, and for gifting your included Honorary Membership to Kelli Miller of Craven County Schools.


  • We colored in Hoke, Robeson, and Scotland counties! Thank you, Professional Member Erika Young of the North Carolina Sea Grant, for updating your profile when renewing your annual membership to share the counties where you work.


"Environmental education is important to me because I want people to have curiosity of who and what they share the planet with, confidence in the world around them, and concern when they are fearful.  My goal is to enrich understanding of the planet's ecosystems and empower to take action to preserve our environment for future generations." - Erika Young, NC Sea Grant

Update: More Prizes! 

Our partners at the Outdoor Learning Store and Take Me Outside heard about the Road to 100 Challenge, and reached out to generously donate a $100 gift certificate each to their respective online stores for us to share with our new members! Now, in addition to the first new member to join EENC in each unrepresented county receiving a giftable EENC Honorary Membership to share with a colleague, all new and existing members reporting previously unrepresented counties will be entered to win these gift cards at the end of the year – or when we reach our 100 county goal, whichever comes first! We are eager to make these additional prizes to our growing membership community, and we thank the Outdoor Learning Store and Take Me Outside for supporting this challenge.


Let’s keep up the momentum! Who can you tell about the Road to 100 Challenge? Who in your network of educators and supporters should become EENC members? Help us get the word out by sharing this blog post through your social media channels!


Next update coming 2/29/24. Until then, we’re on the road again!
