Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education

The Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education (CAEE) is a partnership of environmental education providers and supporters who are working together to advance environmental literacy. CAEE advances environmental education in Colorado by fostering collaboration, mobilizing support, and driving excellence. 

As a professional organization for environmental educators, the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education (CAEE) facilitates communication, cooperation, collaboration, and coordination among the varied environmental education programs in the state.

CAEE was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 1989 to serve the shared interests of public agencies, businesses, teachers, community organizations and individuals distributing and using environmental education materials and programs. It is a neutral and objective source of information related to environmental education in Colorado, and a voice for EE’s important role in the balance between societal needs and environmental quality.

CAEE is growing thanks to the more than 700 members from across Colorado. Our members include teachers, students, nonformal educators, public agency employees, businesses, retirees, and many more. Please join us - all are welcome! Members may also participate on the advisory council and committees. Contact CAEE staff with questions about programs or services.

CAEE is proud to serve as the Colorado affiliate of the North America Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE). The Affiliate Network promotes collaboration for maximum effectiveness and efficiency and a unified voice for Environmental Education across North America and beyond. CAEE has adopted the National Guidelines for Excellence in Environmental Education, established by NAAEE to guide the development of balanced, scientifically accurate, and comprehensive environmental education programs. 

CAEE works to ensure everyone in Colorado has an opportunity to learn about the environment where they live. We value inclusiveness and welcome everyone to the field of environmental education.
