CEEF Support of Statewide Environmental Educator Certification Program
CEEF provided the Association for Environmental & Outdoor Education (AEOE) with early guidance and encouragement in the development of their Environmental Educator Certification Program. Once established, CEEF supplied personalized mentoring to candidates seeking their certification and continues to seek ways to support this very important EE certification program serving all of California.
CEEF Support of the California Environmental Literacy Initiative
CEEF has served as a key advisor to the California Environmental Literacy Initiative (CAELI) since its inception.
