Advancing Ecology Education

As the leading organization in the science of ecology, ESA takes a prominent role in supporting ecological education at all levels, from integration within STEM frameworks to supporting curriculum design in programs specific to ecology and environmental science.

In 2018, 33 participants took part in the 10th Resources for Ecology Education, Fair and Share (REEFS) special session at the ESA Annual Meeting, which was jointly organized with the Education Section. The Annual Meeting also included three sessions organized to highlight progress on the 4DEE framework, which was endorsed by the ESA Governing Board in November.

The year also included the 5th Life Discovery – Doing Science Education conference, which drew 31 proposals for short presentations and workshops.
