Program areas at National Environmental Education and Training Foundation

Classroom earth: with a commitment to connecting people to nature and preparing the next generation of environmental stewards, most of neef's programs engage the public with the outdoors, primarily on public lands. This category includes developing connections that help people understand how the environment impacts their lives through national public lands day, the nation's largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands; hands on the land, the nation's largest network of field classrooms on public lands; and the department of defense's legacy grantmaking program. Also included is environmental education week, a nationwide celebration of environmental education, which raises awareness of the value of environmental education nationwide; and citizen science, which involves students and teachers in and out of the classroom, and allows them to interact with nature enthusiasts, meteorologists, federal partners, and educators.

Public outreach: public outreach works to learn about and market to neef's audiences. For example, the benchmark survey was designed to help guide the creation and assessment of effective environmental education programs to reflect an understanding of different segments of the population based on current levels of environmental knowledge and behavior. The survey initially ran in 2013, and in fy 18, neef re-ran the survey to assess if the priorities, values, and behaviors had changed in the last five years.

Health & wellness: neef's health & wellness approach connects people to nature using health care providers to prescribe active time in nature and inform the public about environmental triggers and the management of asthma. Neef's sunwise program delivers sun safety education materials to educators and the public. Programs funded by the forest service include every kid in the park, healthcare & green spaces, and the children and nature program.
