16 July 2020 Published in News & Events



FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake is excited to support Utah's schools through outdoor learning and environmental education opportunities this coming school year. The Utah Society for Environmental Education's (USEE's) newly launched Guidance for Reopening Schools was developed in partnership with state EE organizations and the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE) and multiple Utah organizations. These guidelines provide practical strategies for schools to leverage outdoor learning and environmental education as a tool to safely reopen schools this fall. We are pleased to endorse this guidance and to continue providing quality environmental education programming for our community's schools and students.
