Financial Summary
 
 
Statements
Mission Statement The mission of KAEE is to promote excellence in environmental education by providing support, resources and networking opportunities to Kentucky’s community of educators.
Background Statement

In the 1970s, environmental education (EE) flourished in Kentucky, as federal funds were earmarked for environmental education, the state hired its first EE official, an advisory Council for Environmental Education was established, and, in 1972, the Kentucky legislature revised an existing Kentucky Conservation Statute to become the Environmental Education Act, with programs mandated in Kentucky's schools.

On July 30, 1976, the Kentucky Association for Environmental Education (KAEE) was formally organized. The first KAEE conference was held in February 1977. The conference, co-sponsored by the Kentucky Department of Education with financial support from the Kentucky Humanities Council, launched KAEE’s continuing annual tradition of offering the premier professional development event for Kentucky’s environmental educators.

 In 1984, Kentucky’s General Assembly repealed the mandate for environmental education. Since that time, KAEE has provided – primarily through volunteer time and effort – the most consistent representation and forum for EE in the Bluegrass State. While state agencies’ EE programming and priorities have waxed and waned, KAEE has maintained the push for a more environmentally literate citizenry. 

In 1989, KAEE published the report, “This UnCommon Opportunity: An Environmentally Literate Kentucky.” As a result, the Environmental Quality Commission convened a special task force to study the issue and need for environmental education. This task force developed a series of recommendations, including one to introduce legislation to develop an environmental education council. 

The Kentucky Environmental Education Council was officially created within the Kentucky Department of Education in 1990, and KAEE continues to partner successfully with this essential government agency.

 KAEE’s contributions to EE practitioners have been varied yet reliable throughout these decades. The annual conference continues to serve as the cornerstone of KAEE’s networking and learning opportunities, complemented by an annual Sustainability Symposium, print and digital newsletters, an interactive social media community, funding (when available) and guidance to educators for professional development and classroom/site projects, and EE curricula workshops. KAEE partners on Project WILD and Project WET workshop facilitation, while providing state oversight and workshop facilitation for Project Learning Tree, Project Underground, and the Leopold Education Project.

Impact Statement

KAEE’s principal achievements for 2015 include:

• Sponsoring more than 25 workshops, such as free Project Learning Tree early childhood education workshops, and training more than 500 educators who impact the lives of approximately 15,000 children.

• Welcoming 150 educators to our 39th annual conference, “Full STEAM Ahead,” for more than 50 interactive and engaging sessions focusing on the content areas of science, technology, engineering, arts and agriculture and mathematics.

• Hosting the fourth annual KAEE Sustainability Symposium, highlighting the local food movement in Kentucky.

• Partnering with the Kentucky Environmental Education Council and the Kentucky Department of Education to facilitate the implementation of the Kentucky Environmental Literacy Plan.

• Accepting the role of statewide coordinator for Project WET and Project WILD.

• Hosting three national webinars by partnering with other NAAEE state affiliates, training 512 educators on evaluation, collective impact, and fundraising.
 
• Providing leadership and hosting a retreat the Southeastern Environmental Education Alliance (SEEA) for development of environmental literacy plans among eight states.
 
KAEE's goals for 2016 include:
  • Launching an Early Childhood Environmental Education (EE) Initiative
  • Expanding and celebrating our statewide EE network at a Fund-/Friend-raising Luncheon;
  • Partnering to implement the Kentucky Environmental Education Literacy Plan (KELP);
  • Bringing special recognition to KAEE award recipients at a KAEE Awards Gala;
  • Exploring opportunities to increase KAEE’s efficiency and effectiveness, adopting new or updating existing policies and procedures; and
  • Demonstrating environmental education as a direct link to and pedagogy tool for science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) education.
Needs Statement

As a small nonprofit with only two full-time staff, KAEE depends on donations of time, support, resources, and services. We can always use…

  • Dedicated volunteers to advance environmental education (EE) in Kentucky via Development, Communications and EE Advocacy, Education, and Capacity Building.
  • Event Assistants for Fundraising Luncheon, Sustainability Symposium, Awards Dinner, and Annual Conference.
  • KAEE Members interested in serving on our Board of Directors or as Ambassadors.
  • Conference Space Suitable for ~200 people for 2nd weekend of September, in Kentucky.

CEO/Executive Director Statement
Our world is characterized by increasingly complex and interconnected challenges – from economic disparities to water, air pollution and climate change. Our societal and environmental problems are likely to grow worse unless we find ways to identify shared values and work together to build a more livable and just society.
 
Today’s children, the future of our society, are spending less and less time outdoors and an increasing number of hours in front of a screen. They are disconnected from the natural systems around them. To quote Mary Pipher, “children cannot love what they do not know.” Environmental educators across the state and beyond are implementing innovative programs to reconnect people to place and to become civically engaged and inspired to take care of the natural world and their home community. 
 
KAEE’s mission is to provide professional development, resources and networking opportunities to Kentucky’s community of educators. Independently, no matter how innovative and extensive these programs are, they are unable to effect long-lasting, meaningful change across the state. Change takes place when truly diverse groups of organizations band together to tackle the issues, supported by mutually reinforcing activities. KAEE’s role is to act as that binding force, harnessing the collective impact of its more than 300 individual and organizational members.

This profile serves as a testament to the importance of the work we are doing and all that we have accomplished in our 39-year history. We are thankful for the support we receive from our dedicated members, donors, supporters and partners, and we invite you to join our team! 

Thank you for your support of environmental education in Kentucky,

Board Chair Statement

The primary strength of KAEE is our vast network of members and volunteers - most notably the all-volunteer, working Board of Directors. In fall 2014, the Board developed a 2015-18 strategic plan, identifying new opportunities to promote the Association’s mission and determining existing initiatives to maintain. Committees were streamlined and better aligned with strategic goals. Policies and procedures have been updated or newly adopted to increase KAEE’s efficiency and effectiveness.

Another key KAEE strength is the ability to build upon previous success and expand into new areas. As the primary provider of professional development (PD) opportunities for Kentucky’s nonformal and formal environmental educators, KAEE provides quality curriculum and pedagogy that align with Kentucky’s education initiatives and standards as well as national standards, like the Next Generation Science Standards. In this regard, KAEE is:
  • Demonstrating environmental education (EE) as a direct link to and pedagogy tool for science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) instruction;
  • Partnering to implement the Kentucky Environmental Education Literacy Plan (KELP; adopted by KY Board of Education, 2011); and
  • Enhancing existing PD opportunities, e.g., updating Project Learning Tree’s (PLT) climate change module.

An additional organizational asset is KAEE’s flexibility to adjust to evolving practitioner needs – a flexibility made possible by our extensive collaborations and partnerships. Simultaneously, KAEE is challenged with the need to broaden our friends and funders to increase capacity. KAEE is already addressing this need by:

  • Extending programming to new or underserved audiences, e.g., hosting Environmental Issues Forums in partnership with the Kettering Foundation and North American Association for Environmental Education;
  • Recognizing and exhibiting exemplary EE in action with an annual Awards Gala; and
  • Advancing partnerships with national and state organizations, like National PLT, Kentucky Environmental Education Council, and Kentucky University Partnership for Environmental Education.

As we look ahead, KAEE’s main challenge is to inform Kentucky’s elected officials, governmental entities, school personnel, business and industry, and the general public on what environmental education is, and what it is not - emphasizing the Association’s and the field of EE’s non-advocacy stance on environmental issues.

An additional challenge is ensuring that KAEE serves all of Kentucky’s environmental educators, including those employed by or serving non-educational organizations, business, and industry. With Kentucky’s aging and increasingly diverse population, KAEE must avoid being defined as a strictly preK-12 association.

Given KAEE’s history and previous accomplishments, the Association will continue to successfully overcome each challenge it encounters. This continuity of excellence demonstrates the dedication and passion that first brought me to KAEE – and why I’ve chosen to assist and now oversee our Board of Directors’ work.

We thank you for your interest in, and support of an environmentally literate Kentucky.

Impact Questions
GoalsHelpWhat is the organization aiming to accomplish? This is the organization's ultimate goal for intended impact.

As Kentuckians work to address current social and environmental challenges, our citizens need a healthy understanding of our natural environment and the interconnection between those ecological and our human systems. Unfortunately, recent research findings (2014) demonstrate adult Kentuckians’ lack of understanding in environmental knowledge that state education standards say should be mastered by the 4th grade (keec.ky.gov). 

The disconnect is starting early: American children ages 3‐12 are spending only 1% of their time outdoors (plt.org), while passing 16x that much in front of screens (nlm.nih.gov).  This environmental illiteracy and “nature deficit disorder” may leave us a legacy of escalating health, emotional, societal, and environmental ills (fws.gov/letsgooutside). 
 
Environmental education (EE) may be our last best hope to connect kids in schools (where children spend 35 hours/week) with the natural world. Outside the academic walls, community EE is a necessity for increasing our collective environmental literacy for understanding, preventing, and solving the complex systems challenges of our rapidly changing society and natural surroundings. 

Educators throughout the state are diverse in audience, skills, methods, and message, but KAEE works to unite, empower, and assist those who share a vision of Kentucky similar to ours:  an environmentally literate society committed to a sustainable future.  Whether a formal PreK-university instructor, or a nonformal educator in a nonprofit organization, business/industry or the public sector, these environmental educators find commonality, professional expertise, invaluable resources, and a supportive network within KAEE.

In serving our members and Kentucky’s community of environmental educators, KAEE's work through 2018 is guided by five overarching strategic goals: 

1) Provide quality educational programs and resources for environmental education (EE); 

2) Build KAEE’s organizational effectiveness to support EE in Kentucky; 

3) Build public support for and investment in EE in Kentucky; 

4) Enhance the capacity and resiliency of the EE field in Kentucky and beyond; and

5) Increase the financial health of KAEE.

Through this near-term strategy of progress and growth, KAEE will continue to enrich and expand on our 40-year legacy of promoting environmental education and environmental literacy in Kentucky, by supporting the educators who administer the daily lessons and activities that are effective environmental education.

StrategiesHelpWhat are the organization's strategies for its stated long-term goals?

Providing quality educational programs and resources for environmental education (EE) in the state is the backbone of KAEE’s work for our member and fellow educators. KAEE has set its sights on the following strategies to this end:

1. Increase use and recognition of EE curricula (including Project Learning Tree (PLT), Project Underground, Leopold Education Project, Project WET, Project WILD) that model quality EE pedagogy and content;

2. Strengthen early childhood (EC) programming and opportunities around environmental education, utilizing the best practices of the North American Association for Environmental Education’s Early Childhood Environmental Education Guidelines for Excellence and existing curricula such as PLT’s Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood curriculum;

3. Increase educational programming and opportunities for underserved audiences to become environmentally literate;

4. Support implementation of the Kentucky Environmental Literacy Plan.

KAEE recognizes that we must build our own organizational effectiveness to support EE in Kentucky, by:

  1. Codifying and clarifying all organizational processes, including further development of staff policies and procedures;
  2. Developing and implementing a board recruitment plan and enhancing the board training process; and
  3. Establishing a volunteer program.

In building public support for and investment in EE in Kentucky, KAEE will:

1. Serve as Kentucky’s liaison to the EE field at the regional, national and international level, disseminating best practices, research driven data and national trends;

2. Foster and support advocates and policies for EE in Kentucky and beyond;

3. Create a marketing plan which can tell the story of KAEE and why EE is so critical to the future of Kentucky; and

4. Enhance current awards program to more broadly recognize excellence in EE.

As part of a broad network of practitioners and supporters of effective environmental education, KAEE seeks to enhance the capacity and resiliency of EE in Kentucky and beyond, through:

1. Conducting a needs assessment of the EE community;

2. Assisting new organizations and programs focused on EE and/or supporting the expansion of existing organizations throughout the state;

3. Providing professional development opportunities for leaders of EE organizations/programs; and

4. Expanding networking opportunities for organizations and individuals with EE interests.

While our nonprofit professional organization status carries most of the weight of KAEE’s work, we must continue to increase the financial health of KAEE for the longevity of support upon which our members depend; consequently, we will

1. Identify new sources of revenue for KAEE;

2. Enhance the fundraising capabilities of our Board of Directors; and

3. Create a development plan for KAEE.

CapabilitiesHelpWhat are the organization’s capabilities for doing this? What resources, capacities, and connections support its progress towards long-term goals?

Created in 1976, KAEE is one of the country’s oldest associations supporting environmental education and the first affiliate of the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE), the continent's foremost organization in environmental education. This longevity has fostered a strong, close-knit community of educators with a rich depth and breadth of expertise and resources.

KAEE’s well-established network of hundreds of individual and organizational members includes representatives from local boards and state department of education, governmental staff from natural resource and related agencies, business and industry personnel, and non-profit organizations. The primary strength of KAEE is this vast network of members and volunteers - most notably the all-volunteer, working Board of Directors, comprised of 13 professional and dedicated EE practitioners from east to west Kentucky.

Executive Director (ED) Ashley Hoffman, one of only three KAEE staff, has served our community for six years, expanding the organization's capabilities, extending our reach, and broadening our professional network. Using her academic foundation in Nonprofit Administration (MS), Wildlife Ecology and Conservation (BA), and Education, she provides KAEE and Kentucky's environmental educators a well-rounded and broad perspective of guidance, innovation, and leadership. With nearly a decade in the environmental education field, she has served as educator, facilitator, trainer, and director, while continuing to improve her base of knowledge and leadership as a student and perpetual learner. Ms. Hoffman was recently awarded the international honor of Outstanding Individual by NAAEE.

As our programming and funding waxes and wanes, we occasionally hire temporary and contract part-time employees for targeted initiatives and program development. Currently, KAEE employs a part-time Communications Manager and recently hired a full-time Operations Coordinator in to begin in June 2016.

The educational principles that KAEE promotes were developed through the National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education, sponsored by NAAEE. As a proud affiliate of NAAEE, KAEE upholds standards of quality and best practices in our field and works to build capacity for EE throughout North America. Our ED holds multiple committee and leadership positions for NAAEE's Affiliate Network.

Regionally, KAEE is a leading member of the Southeastern Environmental Education Alliance (SEEA; collective of 8 southeastern states), and our ED currently serves as SEEA's regional Executive Director.

Since 1990, KAEE has collaborated with essential statewide partners, such as the Kentucky Environmental Education Council and the Kentucky University Partnership for Environmental Education.

KAEE serves as state affiliate for national EE curricula Project Learning Tree, Project Underground, Project WET, Project WILD, and the Leopold Education Project. We hold membership and network within the Society for Nonprofit Organizations, Center for Nonprofit Excellence, and Kentucky Nonprofit Network.

IndicatorsHelpHow will the organization know if it is making progress? What are the key qualitative and quantitative indicators against which the organization assesses its progress toward its intended impact?
In order to assess our progress, we conduct surveys of all participants in our professional development workshops and use this information to assess the quality and the number of individuals we are reaching as well as, indirectly, the number of students we reach through our participants. For each initiative we take on, we use logic models to set quantifiable outcomes so that we may measure success of the project. Measures include numbers of participants reached, length and quality of professional development opportunities provided, diversity of audiences, and our total outreach. 
 
We are shifting our professional development models to be more focused on long term quality and impact versus reaching large numbers of individuals. Providing quality educational programs and resources for environmental education (EE) in the state is the backbone of KAEE’s work for our member and fellow educators.
ProgressHelpWhat has and hasn’t been accomplished so far?

KAEE has taken on a number of new programs and events this year, thanks in large part to the increased support from our donors and members.  Please read on to learn about each of our new initiatives, which include mini grants for schools, new professional development models, the implementation of the Kentucky Environmental Literacy Plan and our awards recognition program, to name a few. 

Already, work on each of our goals is progressing, some of which includes:

• Demonstrating environmental education as a direct link to and pedagogy tool for science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) education through our annual conference.

• Partnering to implement the Kentucky Environmental Education Literacy Plan (KELP) which was adopted by the Kentucky Board of Education December 2011. 

• Bringing special recognition to KAEE award recipients at a KAEE Awards Gala.

• Hosting new friend and fundraising opportunities, such as fundraising luncheons and other targeted outreach initiatives.

With our increased capacity, we are also excited to have had the opportunity to refine the work of our part-time employee Karen Lanier to focus on Communications, as we hire on a new Operations Coordinator, Brittany Wray. Brittany brings the perspective of formal educator with a Master's in Middle Grade Education with a concentration in Environmental Education. Brittany will coordinate the project workshops and day-to-day operations so that KAEE may build its capacity to reach formal and non-formal educators effectively.

Project Learning Tree is a nationally-recognized, award-winning program of the American Forest Foundation (AFF). AFF works with families, educators, and elected officials to promote stewardship and protect our nation’s forest heritage. PLT uses trees and forests as windows on the world to increase students’ understanding of the environment and actions they can take to conserve it. PLT helps educators teach the next generation what our environment provides and what it requires to remain healthy and sustainable for the future. PLT helps educators to teach critical thinking skills - so that students may learn “how to think, not what to think” about complex environmental issues, and problem-solving skills - to make informed choices about the environment. Using the PLT curriculum, educators help students master core subjects and improve academic achievement, while planting the seeds of stewardship in our next generation.

The Project Underground curriculum teaches citizens of all ages about karst topography and the management needs of karst resources. Project Underground facilitators are qualified to provide trainings to other educators interested in utilizing the Project Underground guide, in a train-the-trainer fashion.   Due to the state's limestone geology and climate, Kentucky has a large number of caves and cave systems.  The health of our caves and karst systems is directly interdependent to clean groundwater system - and consequently, our drinking water system.   Kentucky is home to some of the highest diversity levels in the nation for salamanders, aquatic organisms and other cave-dwelling species. A recent discovery is the spread of the dreaded White-Nose Syndrome in our state's bat populations. It is now more important than ever that we educate our citizens on cave and karst systems and the need to protect them.

The Leopold Education Project is an innovative, interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education curriculum based on the
essays in A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold. LEP uses Leopold's writings as a springboard for engaging students in natural science curriculum. The original curriculum has been expanded to include new activities, incorporate new technologies such as GPS, and facilitate teaching in non-formal educational settings, like nature centers and zoos. In 2013, LEP found a new home with the Aldo Leopold

The KAEE Sustainability Symposium is a one day event that moves around the state, highlighting local initiatives and experts in the field. Sustainability is an integral part of KAEE. Teaching about the environment requires that we also educate about the social and economic implications of the environmental decisions we make. Similarly, we also need to teach that our social and economic decisions have environmental impacts. The symposium provides an opportunity to explore the connections between sustainability and environmental education.

CEO Comments Times are changing for environmental education and we are excited to be at the forefront of the movement.  The recent passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act includes environmental education as a fundable priority for the first time in history. This is a huge opportunity for us to get environmental education into the classroom and ensure students are graduating with the knowledge and critical thinking skills they need to make educated decisions on complex environmental issues.  KAEE is working diligently with state, regional and national partners to give all children the opportunity for meaningful environmental experiences.  Our partners and members around the state are doing remarkable work around environmental education.
