In 1997, CEE was recognized by the National Environmental Education Foundation in Washington, D.C. as it received the National Environmental Education Achievement Award for leadership in conservation education. For over 10 years, CEE has served as one of ten partners selected nationally to participate in the EPA’s “Environmental Education and Training Partnership” administered by the U.S. EPA’s Office of Environmental Education in Washington, D.C.
CEE's Flying WILD program was honored to receive the 2007 Partners in Flight Public Awareness Award for its work to advance bird conservation through its education program. Additional awards for Flying WILD include The Wildlife Society’s (TWS) 2011 Conservation Education Award!
CEE has been acknowledged for its ability to consistently provide quality materials and training to thousands of educators per year. Since Project WILD was introduced in 1983, more than 1,000,000 educators in the United States have participated in Project WILD workshops. Those educators, in turn, have provided instruction using Project WILD to more than 53 million youth.
