SPONSORSHIPS

Join educators from around the state of Florida as we explore the role of environmental education in a changing world during our 6th annual conference. The League of Environmental Educators in Florida (LEEF), has been serving environmental educators throughout Florida since 1981.  LEEF supports environmental educators in Florida to achieve their vision of a statewide culture of environmental literacy and stewardship. Environmental education (EE) encourages inquiry, investigation, and the development of skills that enable responsible decisions and actions that impact the environment. Conference attendees will enjoy our pre-conference SEEA Research Symposium, field trips, professional development, LEEF evening networking events, educational sessions, and much, much more! 

 

We anticipate approximately 100 formal and nonformal educators from across Florida. Our conference attendees are educated consumers who are happy to support green companies and educational organizations & agencies.

Don't have money for a sponsorship, but would still like to help?

That's okay, would you be able to provide a quality item or service for our live or silent auction? You could provide an item (gift certificate, book, artwork, rain barrel, etc.) or a service such as free membership to your organization, free consultation (for green businesses), free tour, free night's stay (at lodging businesses), etc. Everyone who donates to the silent auction will be listed in the conference program.
