Woo-hoo! Yesterday was a big day - it was the day of the annual Massachusetts Environmental Education Society (MEES) Conference. This year's theme was Environmental Sustainability in our Schools, Centers, and Selves. The conference drew 278 environmental educators from across Massachusetts (with a couple of people from neighboring states) and was a grand success. I was able to attend two sessions: 'Got Math?: Using Marine Mammal Rehabilitation to Create Math Activities' and 'You've Removed the Invasive Plants - Now What?' These were great sessions and I learned a lot. I also got the opportunity to see many of my friends in the field and talk and chat and laugh. Here are some pics from the day:
