History of the Utah EE Conference

USEE has been hosting the Annual Utah Environmental Education Conference since 1989. The purpose of this event is to bring formal and non-formal environmental educators together to network, share resources and best practices, and to improve the overall quality, depth, and breadth of environmental education in Utah.

What is USEE?

The Utah Society for Environmental Education (USEE), a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, has been a statewide leader in promoting high quality environmental education in Utah since 1981. USEE encourages environmental literacy by teaching Utahans how to think, not what to think, about the environment.
