2016 Membership Transition
Through our recent strategic planning process, MAEE has decided to move away from a membership model. We will stop accepting new individual memberships on December 31, 2016. All individual memberships created or renewed between now and the end of 2016 will receive full MAEE membership benefits until one year after the renewal date. If your membership is due between now and the end of 2016, you may choose to renew it or to make a donation instead. Organizational memberships will continue to be available. Learn more about our decision to move away from a membership model here.

No Water Flows In — It All Flows Out
By: Britt Gangeness
Minnesota has a very unusual geographic position. We sit atop a triple, continental-scale water divide, a divide that sends water north to the Hudson, east to the Great Lakes and the Atlantic, and south to the Gulf of Mexico. Almost all of our water comes to our state as rain or snow.
This means we are not receiving polluted water from a state with lower environmental standards. But it also means we have a responsibility to keep water clean—for our communities and for other states and nations.
Whoa, that’s a big responsibility. How are we doing? Click here to continue readying Britt's blog.
Every month guest bloggers share their stories, resources, and insights into the world of environmental education.
Do you have a story to share? Send in a short entry for the MAEE blog! Share stories from the field, highlight an organization or educator that has influenced you, or feature a resource that's been helpful. Contact the MAEE Communications Committee with ideas.
Mapping Environmental Education in MN
What does EE look like in Minnesota? Where does it happen? Use the MAEE mapping tool to explore all of the great places engaging people in environmental education across the state!
This map is a work in progress, so if you know of something that's not on the map already, please send an email to email@example.com and we'll be sure to add it in.
With a newly redesigned website, SEEK (Sharing Environmental Education Knowledge) offers a database of EE jobs, resources, and events. It's also home to Minnesota's EE guiding documents, like GreenPrint and Environmental Literacy Scope and Sequence.
