Encouraging environmental stewardship and sustainability by supporting environmental educators.
CBEEN is the regional network for environmental education in the Columbia Basin.
Our organization supports a community of engaged and effective environmental educators by connecting them to resources, information,
professional development, and networking opportunities.
Wild Voices for Kids is a curriculum-linked, place-based environmental education program engaging local mentors in the education of K-12 students on the land, history, and culture of the Columbia Basin region.
Wild Voices is a unique program in the Basin as it enables local specialists to develop programs connected to the local environment and tailored to their area of expertise and passion.
CBEEN is energized by facilitating connections, and we are excited to provide opportunities to do so at many events and workshops throughout the year.
This includes workshops, webinars, and annual events such as the Inquiring Voices Sustainability Symposium, Environmental Education Leadership Clinic, and Celebrations of Environmental Education.
We are pleased to provide you with some of the best environmental education resources available!
This includes our Funding Directory, Organization Directory, Teaching Resources, Pro-D Bursaries, Job Board, Curriculum Resources, and more!
