Dear Environmental Education Supporter,
We invite you to show your support for environmental education in our state by sponsoring Kansas Association for Conservation and Environmental Education (KACEE) events this year. KACEE unites public agencies, teachers, community organizations, businesses, and individuals behind a common cause - teaching kids how to think, not what to think, about environmental issues through non-biased and science-based EE.
KACEE is a 501(c)3 organization with a vison to grow a healthy, vibrant and resilient Kansas through the power of environmental education. A portion of your sponsorship is tax deductible. Your sponsorship will be recognized in our promotions, reaching 1300+ people across Kansas.
By sponsoring our fundraising events, you will help offset costs, reduce registration fees, and provide scholarships for educators. Support for environmental education is vital for a healthy environment, vibrant economy, and successful communities.
If environmental education is something that you or your organization deeply values, sponsoring one or more of our events provides the opportunity to live your values and lead your community by example.
Thank you for your consideration!
The KACEE Board and Staff

About the Event
K-12 Teachers! Are you interested in engaging your students in Kansas Green Schools? Hear from Evergy's Communication Manager, Gina Penzig, and KACEE's Green Schools Coordinator, Rachel Wahle, on how to apply the KGS Energy Investigation to real-world energy conservation issues - focusing on winter weather events as we enter into the coldest months of the year in Kansas.
Gina will cover real-world energy issues and concerns in wintertime, including:
- Winter weather as a factor
- Natural gas availability
- What a regional grid means and why it’s generally beneficial
- What utilities have to do in dire winter weather conditions and why
- Why it’s important that controlled interruptions (rolling blackouts) are spread out during extreme weather conditions
- What you can do to help conserve energy this winter!
Rachel will talk about how the Kansas Green Schools Energy Investigation engages students in real-world energy conservation issues through hands-on learning. The Energy Investigation provides students with the framework and tools to feel empowered to find solutions and create change at school, at home, and in the world!
We'll have time to answer your questions about Kansas Green Schools!
