Take Action for EE

(the information below comes from the National Project Learning Tree Organizatoin)

Happy New Year! We need your help in our continuing fight for legislation that supports environmental education, including programs like yours!
The U.S. Department of Education is putting together a new version of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (aka the No Child Left Behind Act), a massive education bill. We need your help to ensure that the bill includes provisions for environmental and outdoor education, like the No Child Left Inside Act (NCLI). NCLI, introduced in Congress last year, provides critical support for environmental education programs like Project Learning Tree®.
Please take action now and send an email to the Department of Education, letting Secretary Duncan and the Obama Administration know that you support the inclusion of NCLI in the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
This exciting and rare opportunity to gain the support of the Department of Education and the Obama Administration may not come again. Please join us in calling for the inclusion of NCLI in the reauthorized Elementary and Secondary Education Act today.
By clicking "take action" you'll be directed to a template email that you can edit. Please take a minute to include some personal elements about your experiences with environmental education. When you click "send" it will automatically be delivered to the Department of Education.
Thank you for taking action in support of environmental education!
