EEAC’s Steering Committee has temporarily suspended the collection of membership dues for the calendar year 2023. As a small volunteer-run non-profit, our mission is to build an inclusive community for anyone interested in increasing their capacity to understand and address NYC’s environmental and related societal challenges. 

In the meantime, we appreciate voluntary tax-deductible donations to maintain our website and offset the cost of programming. Whether you can make a donation or not, we hope to see you at an upcoming event, to hear from you in our google group, or to work alongside you at a committee meeting to help us further our goals. Not sure where to jump in? Send a message to the Steering Committee through our online contact form.

Who is Part of the EEAC Community

EEAC historically brought together formal and informal educators to extend the reach of environmental education in NYC. In its five decades, the field has greatly expanded to include people of all walks of life to serve their community through education and outreach. Today we stand by our mission to build an inclusive community not limited to: K-12 teachers, informal educators, education administrators, families, scientists and college faculty. We hope to come together to increase our capacity to address and take action in the environmental and societal challenges affecting NYC and beyond.
