The purpose of the Kansas City Environmental Education Network is to improve environmental education for preK-12 students in the Kansas City region by providing professional development opportunities to teachers and non-formal educators.

What we do

  • KCEEN Planning Committee meetings – These monthly meetings give KCEEN members a chance to network, discuss issues and plan for upcoming events.
  • Teaching Environmental Stewardship Award (TESA) – TESA is given each year to a teacher who provides exceptional environmental education to their students.
  • Teacher Resource Day – A partnership with Science Pioneers that includes teachers sharing lessons, and science education organizations showcasing the opportunities they have for teachers and students.
  • Environmental Education Resource Guide – This is a comprehensive overview of  programs and resources offered by many organizations in our region. This is a great resource for educators of all types who want to enhance their students and children’s interaction with the environment.
