Our mission is to build and strengthen the partnerships and strategies that will bring environmental literacy to all of California’s 6.2 million K–12 students.
We believe that every student in California can achieve environmental literacy; that all students deserve the opportunity to understand, interact, and connect with their environment in meaningful ways that promote learning and growth. We act as a connector, building partnerships and forging pathways to ensure that California’s K–12 students receive a high-quality education with an environmental component. Together we create a healthy future for our planet and its inhabitants. Our strategy harnesses the vast and diverse reach of California public schools, combined with the resources of environmental education providers such as science centers and outdoor education programs, to ensure all students, particularly those from underserved communities, have access to an environment-based education.
