Shortly after moving back to Kansas 21 years ago, I’ve been involved in KACEE. For the past 16 years I have had the pleasure of serving on the KACEE Board of Directors, which includes a term as President. I have personally and professionally benefited from participating in the various workshops offered by KACEE. As an occasional nonformal educator, I have used the interdisciplinary curriculum, ideas, and teaching techniques generated from KACEE with school children, church associated activities with children, and even adults. What is really heartwarming and exciting to me is to see all the creative and beneficial conservation and environmental education activities across the state of Kansas that KACEE had a direct or indirect role in. However, I’m always amazed when I hear someone who recently found out about KACEE, who was “singing its praises,” and commenting that they can’t believe they never heard of it before. So, we, KACEE still has its work cut out in promoting conservation and environmental education opportunities to those who care about protecting our Earth and who want to teach our young people not what to think, but how to think.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
build a "state of art" environmental education and conference center in Kansas that would attract visitors worldwide.
