Motivate learning through Contests!
The California Regional Environmental Education Community (CREEC), administered by the California Department of Education, is a communication network supporting the environmental literacy of California's students by providing teachers with access to high quality environmental education resources.
In addition to communicating news and information about environmental education, grants and local events, this website offers the "Education by Nature" searchable database of standards-based programs, field trips, on-line resources and professional development opportunities from environmental education providers across the state.
Teachers and others can search by region, grade-level, program-type, topic, specific content standards, and/or nonprofit provider, to find the right program to meet their needs.
Providers can use this site to include their resources in the Resource Directory, and to post their calendar events.
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.
