Utah Environmental Education Awards Celebration Week

August 21-28th is Utah Environmental Education Award Celebration Week - and we have so much to celebrate!

2020's cohort of awardees is an inspiring group. They truly exemplify our mission of working to ensure that all Utahns can connect to the natural world. Many of these awardees have also demonstrated tremendous adaptability and flexibility in modifying their programs to meet the challenges posed by the Coronavirus. 

You can learn more about this year's winners by attending our 2020 Utah Environmental Education Award Celebration this Friday, August 28th from 6-8 PM. We also have a Virtual Silent Auction running through August 28th. Funds from this event will support our upcoming annual conference.
