Executive Director Update

Give to the Max Day 2021 is November 18th this year!
As a small, volunteer managed nonprofit MAEE is totally dependent upon the generosity of our members and donors to continue our important work of connecting environmental educators throughout Minnesota. Give to the Max Day is our most important fundraising initiative and this year you can begin making donations as early as November 1st! is an established simple way to donate and provides a secure method for you to direct your support to MAEE. Your generosity will support Minnesota environmental education professionals via scholarships, professional development, and recognition. 

Now more than ever our dedicated environmental education professionals teaching in schools, interpreting at nature centers, leading outdoor recreation programs, counseling in summer camps, and advocating at government agencies need and deserve your support. Our children and future generations are looking to us for leadership on critical global environmental issues that can no longer be delayed. Won't you help us help them?
