professional development agency. Conference attendance tripled and RIEEA gained access to a new audience. The partnership continues and Childspan has committed 2009 to working with its members to get kids outdoors. Also in 2008, RIEEA sponsored an evening with Richard Louv as part of our effort to garner public support for an ELP in Rhode Island. Over 400 people attended and were engaged in considering the importance of children in nature. RIEEA has been working with the New England Environmental Education Alliance to coordinate ELP efforts with the other New England states. Four of these states (RI, VT, NH & ME) share Grade Span Expectations and assessments (NECAP), so the goal is to have an aspect of the ELP that is common to all six states. RIEEA and previous award recipients are highlighted on the NAAEE Web site, . For Further Information Contact:
