35th Annual
Residential Outdoor Environmental Education (ROEE) conference

Feb. 17-20, 2017
Walden West Outdoor School
Saratoga, CA


Thank you to everyone who made the 35th annual ROEE conference a huge success: participants, presenters, sponsors, volunteers. We had over 75 people attend from 8 different states, some great workshops and fun excursions and lots of sharing, learning and inspiration! We raised nearly $2000 in seed money for next year's conference, which will be hosted by the Parkway School District and held at the YMCA Trout Lodge and Camp Lakewood, outside St. Louis, MO. We look forward to seeing you there!
