CONFERENCE CO-CHAIR MESSAGE
At the end of a long career as an Environmental Educator, I can look back at memories ranging from inspiring mentors, to unlikely teachable moments, to lifelong friend-colleagues, to outstanding students, to challenging assignments to rewarding opportunities, to enchanting places. Among my fondest memories are the many NYSOEA conferences I’ve had the privilege to attend where all of the above converge.
