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

Time & Location

About the Event
Dale Dufer talks about why he makes art out of invasive bush honeysuckle, how he uses art to strike up conversations about conservation and nature, and shares his story of cultivating creative partnerships to help raise awareness. He will also speak to working with school-aged kids and involving them in making art out of plants.
Bush Honeysuckle - It's EVERYWHERE! "Think About Tables" uses strengths of the plant itself to build ecological awareness and invasive species action. St. Louis artist and woodworker Dale Dufer invites you into "fun with sticks" as a way to explore resourceful solutions. Local eco-advocate Jean Ponzi assists. Dufer's Think About Tables workshops since 2016 sprouted the 2018 Trial of Bush Honeysuckle at St. Louis Old Courthouse, that has flowered into MEEA's Invasive Species Mock Trial Curriculum!
