Sonoma Resource Conservation District

Sonoma Environmental Education Collaborative (SEEC)

The Sonoma Environmental Education Collaborative (SEEC) is a regional consortium of environmental education professionals from organizations, agencies, networks, and school districts throughout Sonoma County. The Sonoma RCD has participated in this collaborative effort for over five years, bringing the agricultural and natural resource conservation education program expertise to the table.

The SEEC mission is to create vibrant, innovative collaborations that increase environmental literacy in Sonoma County citizens. As a collaborative, SEEC undertakes its mission by identifying and addressing regional needs for environmental education beyond the scope of individual organizations.

SEEC's founding goals are:

  • Implement culturally relevant outdoor events throughout Sonoma County for thousands more families and individuals.
  • Share best practices for environmental education experiences that would be inherent in all programming.
  • Establish and maintain an ongoing connection between participating organizations to coordinate and magnify efforts.
  • Provide comprehensive communication linking our communities to upcoming outdoor activities.

SEEC members meet monthly to network, discuss and share information about regional environmental education efforts, and promote work of the SEEC committees. A “leadership by consensus” approach is promulgated by SEEC to maintain the spirit of an open forum whereby the responsibility for meetings and projects are shared by all member organizations.
