Scenes from the Summer

Myself and the rest of the EE staff are still checking out pictures from this past summer's adventures. The photo contest winners will be posted soon. For now though, here are a few scenes I'd like to share. These kids will be going forward with a new understanding of the importance of the Earth's fragile environments, and their own power to make positive change.

An Exciting Year

What an exciting summer @ Earth Explore. Students heading in all directions, from Alaska's Kenai Fjords to Hawaii's rain forest preserves, and lots going on here at the national office too. We've totally redesigned our online look...you'll find the web site easier to navigate, more interactive and fun. And it continues to grow, so check back often. Some of our staff...including myself, should be posting videos soon.

You know, one of the things we like the most is our ability to stay in contact through Twitter and Facebook. I know what you're thinking. But these tools, when used correctly, are very powerful ways to get people to think about important stuff...like the health of Planet Earth.

Another exciting development...lots of students taking Earth Explore for college credit. Getting insights about the environment and Planet, and getting credit for it that will carry into the future.
