No Child Left Inside Legislation Reintroduced in Congress

Thanks to you and our colleague organizations, the No Child Left Inside act (NCLI) got a great start this year. We feel that with another round or two of followups to engage addition legislators who needed more time and encouragement to sign-on, our Congressional champions will be able to position the provisions of NCLI to be considered for inclusion into the larger Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).

Bill numbers: H.R. 882 & S. 492, introduced on 2/11/15 & 2/12/15. More about them at www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/882 and www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/senate-bill/492. You can sign up there to get an alert about any official actions. Note that as of today, the bill names on Congress.gov are the formal, “A bill to amend the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 in order to improve environmental education…” We have been informed that it will be administratively changed to “No Child Left Inside Act of 2015” shortly.

Cosponsors: Thanks to you and the coalition of our friends, including the NCLI Coalition, National Wildlife Federation, and others, 42 House members are original cosponsors, plus sponsor Rep. Sarbanes (MD-3), compared to 43+1 for all of the last Congress…great work! On the Senate side, we were level with the last Congress for initial cosponsors, with five plus Sen. Reed (RI). In both chambers there are many additional legislators who have supported us in the past, including every one who cosponsored last time in the Senate; see below. Support spread sheet attached. (One more House cosponsor was added this morning, bringing us even with the House total from the last Congress!)

What’s next? Thank you notes + requests for our initial cosponsors to help us with recruiting some of the additional cosponsors we need. Please send your thanks via email to all legislators and staff you connected with who cosponsored, or even if you hadn’t contacted them… if they stepped up, then send a thank you. We also need public thank yous – have your state environmental education (EE) association mention our champions in their newsletter, blog, twitter feed, etc. Request that other organizations with whom you are friends, do the same: local league of conservation voters, Audubon Societies, the zoo and aquarium, etc. Sample social media language attached.

We still need more NCLI cosponsors in these categories:

Senators – We are thin with their support so far. There are 16 who have cosponsored in the past but not yet this year… mostly because they weren’t asked again!

Other past EE supporters, Senate and House, of NCLI – we have plenty of friends of environmental education who just need a little reminding of the importance of EE to their state and country, and of their past support. There are an additional 10 House members who cosponsored last term and haven’t yet done so this one, and 30 more who cosponsored in other previous Congress and not yet this time, and plenty more who have signed appropriations support letters.

Freshmen – We need new champions; we only have two so far. Some of these new legislators don’t know what EE looks like in their district or state, or they may know and love your school/organization, but don’t think about the connection between your good work, EE, and NCLI. For freshmen profiles see http://info.cqrollcall.com/NewMemberGuide2014.html (you must provide your email address to download this).

Education committee members – In the House we have 9 of 16 already cosponsoring on the Democratic side, and 4 of the those remaining 7 have supported EE in Congress in the past. On the Senate HELP Committee, we have only 3 cosponsoring ed committee members so far, but again, almost all of the rest of the Democrats on the committee are friends of EE.

At least one cosponsor from every state – We are almost 1/2 way there with 23 states and D.C. represented… let’s try for this!

Republicans – We simply need more connections with them.

With all of the above groups, we know in some cases there might be a low probability of an individual legislator willing to be on the record cosponsoring NCLI, so the goal becomes having them make that positive link between your good work and support of EE, so that the Senator or Representative will at least say that they won’t vote against us!

In the coming few weeks: Congressional EE appropriations support to request. For most of us, it makes sense to combine our appeals to our legislators with several appropriation items for Congress. More on this shortly.

Thanks again for a great start!

EPA Region 8 is launching an Earth Day poster contest in conjunction with the 2014 EPA Earth Day theme of climate change, and with the EPA Climate Change in Focus Video Contest.

Theme of the Poster Contest:  What are the impacts of climate changes in my area?  The Earth’s climate is getting warmer. Rain patterns are changing, sea level is rising, and snow and ice are melting sooner in the spring. As global temperatures continue to rise, we are likely to see more changes in our climate and our local environment. These changes have the potential to affect people, animals, and ecosystems in many ways.  To enter the poster contest, represent the climate change impacts in your area on a poster using the art medium of your choice (drawing, painting, photograph, fiber, mixed media, etc.).

All posters will be displayed, and the winners will be announced, at an event on Monday, April 28, from 12:00 to 1:00 pm at the EPA Region 8 Regional Office in Denver, CO.

Environmental Education will be funded in 2014 by Congress!

In This Issue Congress Funds Environmental Education in 2014!
Article3Box1Congress Funds Environmental Education in 2014!bwet_home.jpgCongress has once again continued funding in FY 2014 for the key federal environmental education programs. This is despite the fact that the Administration eliminated these programs from the federal budget for the 2nd year in a row. The recently-passed FY 14 omnibus bill funds EPA’s and NOAA‘s environmental education programs at a combined $21 million in FY 2014. This includes $8.3 million for EPA’s National Environmental Education Act programs, $7.2 million for NOAA’s Regional B-WET programs and $5.6 million NOAA’s Educational Program Base that traditionally includes environmental literacy grants. This is a significant win in a year of budget showdowns and shutdowns. Importantly, these funds, while modest in comparison to the trillion dollar federal budget, have provided critical support to the environmental education field over the last several years. Stay tuned for future updates as the FY 2015 budget process unfolds!

Join Geographer and Educator Dr Joseph Kerski as we explore why and how to teach Environmental Education with today’s web mapping technologies! These technologies, such as ArcGIS Online (www.arcgis.com/home) allow your students to:

  • collect data in citizen science mode via probes, smartphones, and GPS receivers in the field,
  • allow you and your students to map and analyze the patterns from your field-collected data,
  • and analyze land use change, coastal erosion, and other environmental issues from local community greenways to world ecoregions, and everything in between.

The skills gained from these map-driven investigations include critical thinking, working with real data, inquiry, and career and technology education, and are aligned with environmental education content standards.

It’s time to celebrate!!!! I wanted these two committees to be the first to know that the State Board of Education met today to be presented with the final draft of the Environmental Education Plan and in a surprise move, they voted on the motion, and officially passed and adopted the plan!!!! It passed with Bipartisan support (only 2 no votes) and the acknowledgement that this work is happening in schools across Colorado!

This is a very exciting day! Thank you so much for all your hard work over the past 3,4,5 years in putting all the pieces into motion to make this happen. I can’t tell you how excited I am- I have already cried a couple of times. This is the first step in really making EE a part of the educational experience for all Coloradans.

We will be following up with a press release in the next few days to let everyone know and information on how to thank your state board representatives and the team at CDE and DNR. We had a real champion in Elaine Gantz Berman and several very supportive board members.

This came from Katie Navin of the Colorado Alliance of Environmental Education (CAEE). CAEE got the first state EE plan passed with the help of many organizations, public, private and non-profit.  However the greatest part of the Thanks because of the greatest part of the drive, energy, enthusiasm (way too much enthusiasm) and leadership goes to Katie Navin of the CAEE.

Thanks Katie!
