Council for Environmental Education
The Council for Environmental Education is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization founded in 1970. Its programs are among the most long-lived and successful environmental education efforts in the nation.
For more than 40 years CEE has been a nationally recognized leader in environmental education, providing programs and services that promote responsible stewardship of natural resources. In 1991, President Bush presented CEE's Project WILD program with the President's Environment and Conservation Challenge Award for excellence in developing innovative solutions to the nation's environmental challenges. CEE was recognized by the National Environmental Education and Training Foundation in Washington, D.C. with the 1997 National Environmental Education Achievement award for leadership in conservation education. CEE was one of 10 partners selected nationally to participate in the EPA's Office of Environmental Education supported "Environmental Education and Training Partnership." CEE's programs are considered benchmark environmental education programs, cumulatively reaching more than 50,000 educators per year through high quality workshops delivered by a national network of partners in state wildlife agencies and conservation organizations.
