2016 MAEE Annual Conference: Grow in the Open
August 5th-6th at St. John's University in Collegeville, MN
Welcome to the 2016 MAEE conference, Grow in the Open. A quote by Walt Whitman inspired the theme this year. "Now I see the secret of making the best person: it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth."
Keynote address by Chad Dayton
