Abstract: 

SEEK stands for Sharing Environmental Education Knowledge and is the home of Minnesota's environmental education (EE) resources.

SEEK is dedicated to providing quality EE resources and defines evironmental education as the exploration of social and natural systems and their relationships.

SEEK is a dynamic website that is constantly evolving. It includes a comprehensive directory of nearly 1500 resources, press releases, employment opportunities, EE research abstracts, EE links, a calendar of events, and much more.

SEEK is truly a partnership of a wide variety of environmental educators in Minnesota, sharing resources and events with educators, citizens, students, and others interested in environmental education. SEEK Partners are organizations in Minnesota that engage in environmental education and provide EE resources and/or services and include zoos, aquariums, schools, colleges, government agencies, nature centers, businesses, and non-profit organizations. Our Partners continually add new resources to the Calendar and Browse Resource sections.

SEEK is dedicated to sharing the statewide cornerstone EE pieces in its Minnesota EE section:

  • A GreenPrint for Minnesota: State Plan for Environmental Education
  • Environmental Literacy Scope and Sequence
  • Minnesota Report Card on Environmental Literacy
  • Minnesota's legislation regarding environmental education
  • A collection of Minnesota's Master's and Doctoral EE research
  • Information about Minnesota's Environmental Education Advisory Board
  • Initial funding for SEEK was approved by the Minnesota Legislature in 1995 (ML 1995, Chapter 220, Sec. 19, Subd. 6(c)), as recommended by the LCCMR from the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund. Today, SEEK is housed in and funded by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency as part of its legislative charge and commitment to environmental education in Minnesota.
