The results of the project will be a stronger network of environmental educators adopting better practices in environmental education that produce higher quality and effectiveness materials and programs. In addition, educators will be more thoroughly prepared to develop programs that generate and document positive environmental outcomes. The project will also provide much needed continuity for the Borderwide EE Coalition that is currently enjoying renewed interest and support border wide.
