California Regional Environmental Education Community

This year, The California Department of Education introduces the new, a new site that harnesses the power of environmental education instruction for students pre-K through high school!

The site is based upon the highly successful "Education by Nature" platform, originated by The Environmental Volunteers and their "Science by Nature" project in the SF Bay Area, now serving over 1070 schools with leveraged service delivery from 16 nonprofit EE providers. 

CREEC brings together Environmental Education Providers, Businesses, Government Agencies, and Community Organizations to support environmental education programs throughout California. We help providers align to content standards and the Education and the Environment (EEI) curriculum and give educators access to high quality environmental education resources that enhance the environmental literacy of California students.

Here's an example!

Use Chrome or Firefox for the best User Experience if you're on a government system with firewall. The Internet Explorer browser sometimes does not cooperate with site navigation.
