Top 10 Reasons to Attend the 31st Annual UT EE Conference!

The 31st Annual Utah Environmental Education Conference is less than two weeks away! We can’t wait to catch up after another wild year and learn along with you. If you haven’t registered yet, we wanted to share with you the top 10 reasons to attend this annual event. 

10. Do you miss seeing your friends and colleagues? We sure do! The conference is a space for learning, networking and collaborating. We’ll have a great mix of virtual and in-person events! 

9. Conference sessions on November 4th and 5th will be recorded. But the only way to access these sessions is to register. This includes all keynotes, panelists, guest speakers and conference sessions. 

8. Speaking of keynotes, we’re excited to welcome Diandra Marizet, Executive Director of Intersectional Environmentalist as our keynote speaker on Thursday, November 4th! 

7. Come and learn about the intersection of environmental education and environmental justice on Wednesday, November 3rd at Clark Planetarium. This workshop will feature content from Project Learning Tree and Project Wet, as well as guest speakers and hands-on activities. All participants will leave with a PLT and PWET guide at a very low cost thanks to our sponsors. Did we mention that the new PLT K-8 guide features all new content? You’ll be one of the first to get your hands on this guide by attending this workshop. 

6. Our panel on Friday, November 5th will focus on accessibility and inclusion in environmental education. You’ll hear from a great line-up of local and national panelists! 

5. This year, conference sessions will feature content from amazing Utah environmental educators and national partners. We’re a little partial to our Utah colleagues! But there’s something for everyone this year. 

4. We’re also glad to feature a few conference sessions that connect to USBE standards. Environmental education is a great way to connect to the standards and the natural world. Teachers who attend will gain tips, tricks and access to resources on incorporating EE into the classroom. 

3. Did we mention that there’s also time for fun? We’re hosting an in-person social on Friday, November 5th at Tracy Aviary’s Jordan River Nature Center and we can’t wait to see you there! You do need to register in advance to attend. 

2. The conference provides a space for learning from others, but we’ve also included time for virtual networking and open space sessions. The conference also provides USEE staff with the opportunity to hear from you! We want to know your ideas about EE in Utah and we’ll provide space for sharing and collaborating. 

1. If you’re an environmental educator in Utah, this conference is for you and we want to you be there.
