The California Regional Environmental Education Community (CREEC) Network is a program of the California Department of Education to support environmental literacy of California’s students by providing teachers with access to high quality environmental education resources.
The CREEC Network fosters regional partnerships throughout the state of California to promote environmental education and is currently sponsored by the California Department of Education, the California Department of Water Resources, the State Superintendent of Public Instruction’s Environmental Literacy Steering Committee, and Ten Strands.
In addition to communicating news and information about environmental education, grants and an online calendar of events, this website will soon offer a searchable database of standards-based programs, field trips, on-line resources and professional development opportunities from environmental education providers across the state.
Along with statewide sponsors and partners, each California CREEC Region is supported by Regional Coordinators. Regional Coordinators provide professional development and resources to educators as well as foster communications among schools and organizations interested in supporting environmental literacy of California’s teachers and students.
