Environmental Educators Plan International Conference for South Padre Island, Texas
Thursday, July 13, 2000

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Over 1,000 environmental educators will gather on an island off the Texas coast to discuss the growing need for environmental literacy around the world. The conference of the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE), scheduled for October, has already attracted a large number of early registrations.
Environmental educators from around the world will gather to discuss their teaching experiences working in classrooms, national parks, inner cities, zoos and aquaria, and other settings. The research presented at the conference will be analyzed and debated as conference participants attempt to meet the demands of a growing and mobile population on limited natural resources.
For the first time, conference registration is possible on the Internet ( along with the content of the 32-page registration packet.
"The surge in early registration is the result of a good conference program and early publicity," notes Barb Eager, conference manager for NAAEE. "And having an international conference on an island doesn't hurt, either!"
