DAEE holds a variety of events for you!
In addition to our Annual Conference, DAEE holds a variety of other events. These events are for members and non-members and their families to get together and network, learn about nature in Delaware, or develop environmental education skills.
DAEE offers special behind-the-scenes tours, professional development workshops, paddling trips, and other events.
We’re always looking for ideas for events! If you have an idea for an event, want to host an event, or think we may be able to partner on an event let us know at DAEEonline@gmail.com.
If getting our kids out into nature is a search for perfection, or is one more chore, then the belief in perfection and the chore defeats the joy. It’s a good thing to learn more about nature in order to share this knowledge with children; it’s even better if the adult and child learn about nature together. And it’s a lot more fun.”
– Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods
