I am excited to be one of two keynote speakers and a session presenter at the April 7 "In Bloom Conference" in Asheville, NC, hosted by Antioch University of New England. The conference will feature morning and afternoon keynotes and two workshop timeslots to actively engage in the nature programming of your choice. All events focus on the educational and health benefits of being in the natural world with children.

Midwest Environmental Education Conference Keynote Address

The Midwest Environmental Education Conference (MEEC) is a professional development collaboration between four states—Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The EE Associations in these states invite all to join together for local field studies, educational sessions, trainings and workshops focused on environmental, cultural, and historical interpretation and education. MEEC is held every two years, and the 2017 conference is being organized by the Environmental Education Association of Illinois. I'm honored and excited to me one of this year's keynote speakers. I will also be providing a one-hour concurrent session "Developmentally Appropriate Practices--The Dos and Don'ts of Working with Young Children." 

Attendees must register for the conference. You can learn more and register here
