New York Sea Grant, in partnership with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, has announced the New York Great Lakes Ecosystem Education Exchange program, also known as NYGLEEE, for K-12 teachers and environmental educators. This program provides hands-on, experiential learning opportunities focused on Great Lakes Literacy Principles and stewardship at www.nyseagrant.org/educationexchange.
The program includes a clearinghouse website with materials that meet New York State Learning Standards, access to 25 Basin Bins filled with classroom-ready resources, a Great Lakes Model Educators Networks for professional development opportunities, and Great Lakes learning workshops with peers.
NYGLEEE was developed with support from the Environmental Protection Fund, in support of the Ocean and Great Lakes Ecosystem Conservation Act of 2006. NYGLEEE achieves the outreach, education and coordination goals of the NY Great Lakes Action Agenda, fostering environmental literacy, awareness of issues, and promoting stewardship.
