It's been several years since I've been as this conference is also pretty pricey. But, I always learn a ton of things while I'm here. This year is no exception. So, the next few posts will be all about what I've seen and learned at the NAAEE Conference. I hope you enjoy it and I hope it inspires you to attend future NAAEE conferences and even become a member. You can find more information about that online at www.naaee.net

I got in Tuesday afternoon and got to have lunch at the Pacific Coast Brewing Company. Very good food and micro brews, if you're into that. I then met up with the affiliates group for dinner. Most states have a state affiliate organization of NAAEE. Ohio's is EECO or the Environmental Education Council of Ohio. I happen to be the ODNR Advisor to their executive board. Each year, NAAEE hosts an Affiliates workshop and they all went out to dinner together at Miss Pearl's Restaurant in the Jack London Square, which is Oakland's waterfront district. Good food and good conversation with people from the D.C., Hawaii, Maryland, Vermont and more. This is another benefit of these conferences, you get to meet a lot of cool people from all over the country. The networking is tremendous!
More to come!
