Colorado Alliance of Environmental Education is losing State Funding for its Executive Director

The Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education (CAEE) has always been politically correct. so I thought I would interpret. The CAEE is losing the funding for its Executive Director. The opportunity for this funding has allowed the CAEE to accomplish amazing and astounding things for the careers and profession of Environmental Educators.

This is going to be a set back for Environmental Education in Colorado.

DearCAEE Members and Supporters,Ensuring that Colorado has environmentally connected and informed decision makers is a collective effort and our impact grows as we mobilize partnerships. One of our keystone partners, the Colorado State Forest Service, has had a profound impact on environmental education in Colorado through their long standing support of CAEE.The Partnership has evolved over the last 20 years from providing staff and expertise to create the first Colorado Environmental Education Master Plan to fully supporting the executive director position at CAEE. Our partnership continues to evolve and beginning in 2016 our partnership will shift from the Colorado State Forest Service supporting the executive director position to partnering in other meaningful ways to advance environmental education.

CAEE recognizes the critical and important role the Colorado State Forest Service has had enabling CAEE to take an active role in:

  • Creating the first Master Plan for EE in Colorado to help create a common agenda for environmental education
  • Advocating for the inclusion of EE in our State Academic Standards
  • Passing the first Colorado Legislation supporting EE in 2010
  • Supporting the passage of the Colorado Environmental Education Plan, adopted by the State Board of Education in 2012
  • Leading the Careers in Natural Resources Initiative with the Colorado Youth Corps Association to ensure that all Colorado youth and young adults have access to career pathways in Natural Resources

Without the State Forest Service, the landscape of environmental education would not have its current impact and CAEE would not have achieved the same level of growth and success. As we continue to build EE in Colorado in 2016 and beyond, we are focused on building new opportunities for partnership with the Colorado State Forest Service and new partnerships that will continue to grow the impact and build capacity for environmental education in Colorado. If you have any questions, please contact me at director or 303-273-9527.

Sincerely,

Katie Navin, Executive Director

and

CAEE Board of Directors

Pathways to Natural Resources Careers Summit

I am pleased to announce that we will be holding our follow-up meeting to the Pathways to Natural Resources Careers Summit on April 24th from 9:00 to 11:30 in the Hunter Education Room of the Colorado Parks & Wildlife building located at 6060 Broadway, Denver, CO 80216. The agenda for this event was generated by participants who attended the Pathways to Natural Resources Careers Summit held on February 23rd, co-hosted by CYCA and BLM.. With record numbers of Agency staff poised to retire and youth and young adult unemployment at 20%, this issue is of great importance.

The primary request at the conclusion of the February Summit was to conduct an inventory of existing resources for assisting young people to chart careers in natural resources – especially in State and Federal agencies. To that end, on April 24 we will:

1 – conduct a resource inventory

2 – identify resource gaps (by geographic area, age group, and target population)

3 – identify 2-3 action steps we can take in the next 12 months to fill those gaps

As such, please bring any and all of the electronic or hard copy resources you have that pertain to creating a path to employment in the natural resources sector. We will have laptops, and a projector and screen to enable review of electronic resources; please bring several copies of your hard copy materials for review by small groups. Load e-resources on a flash drive. If you are not able to attend, we encourage you to submit resources to us in advance so that they can be considered during the meeting. Please send them to Grant Sanford (gsanford).

Even if you were not able to attend the February Summit, we encourage you to attend this meeting and offer your insight on the topic.

I have attached the summary document from the first Pathways Summit compiled by facilitator Wendy Newman. As this summary illustrates, there are a number of short-term goals that we can collectively achieve through a focused effort. The first step is determining what resources are immediately available and what remains to be created, refined, and implemented. Your assistance and contributions are critical in achieving these goals and ultimately providing natural resource career opportunities to a broad base of young people.

There is no charge for the meeting. To RSVP, follow this link: nweil or 303-863-0603.

Light breakfast refreshments along with coffee and tea will be provided; please bring your own beverage container. RSVP by Tuesday, April 17, 2012.

Feel free to forward this email to other interested individuals.
