How do you know if your programs are meeting your educational needs?
When was the last time you evaluated your programs and updated their information, activities or content?
How do you know if they need updating?
To ensure the quality of your programs and the professionalism of the field, it is important to evaluate programs and program materials that you are offering your audiences. A simple and universally accepted tool for this is the Guidelines for Excellence publications that set high quality standards for environmental education. The Guidelines were developed by the North American Association for Environmental Education (www.naaee.org) through the National Project for Excellence in EE.

- Guidelines for Excellence: Environmental Education Materials
