NHEE could use your help. Are you interested in volunteering?
Over the next few years, we want to focus on fostering connections throughout the state. We want to bring New Hampshire’s Environmental Literacy Plan (ELP) to the forefront and make EE an easily accessible priority for teachers and administrators. We want to make people aware of the great work that is already being done in NH, connect educators with resources and develop new partnerships with diverse groups.
We could use your creativity, organizational skills, and energy to help make these and other initiatives happen.
5 SIMPLE WAYS YOU CAN TAKE A STAND FOR NHEE
#1. Become a member!
Visit the Membership page now! While we work to promote all EE, a few of our benefits are limited to our members. Members can advertise job openings on our website and their programs will be highlighted, and members can apply for grants and scholarships we offer. Other benefits abound, not least of which is helping to promote environmental education in the state and beyond. Organizational memberships are just $120/year for you and all of the employees at your specific location.
#2. Add a resource to our website or event to our calendar!
You can add a resource anytime on our website! And/or e-mail us for more info, and we’ll add you to our Google calendar so you, or someone in your organization, can add your environmental or science-focused events and resources for the public to see.
#3. Consider extending discounts to NHEE members, or encouraging a business to do so!
If you’re an organization that provides services or products for a fee, consider partnering with us! Or, there’s a business you think would be a good fit, encourage them to contact us for a partnership! Partnering business logos are featured on our membership cards. Members currently receive discounts at the Seacoast Science Center, the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, the Little Nature Museum, and Tin Mountain Conservation Center. Add your organization to this growing list.
#4. Get Involved!
Tell us how we can best serve you! Send any ideas or requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. Consider serving on our board or a sub-committee. Environmental education extends beyond science teachers or nature centers: any subject you can imagine has great ties to EE. This also includes folks beyond the formal world of education, with backgrounds in business, administration, journalism, advocacy, accounting, health, childcare and much more-- if you're passionate about getting folks outdoors and connecting with the world, check us out. Our next meeting is Wednesday, May 3rd, 6-8pm in Concord, or you can visit us on Facebook.
#5. Spread the word!
Tell your friends and colleagues about opportunities we offer, follow us on Facebook, and stay in touch!
Get involved on a national level.
