South Tahoe Environmental Education Coalition (STEEC) is a network of more than 20 local agencies and organizations that collaborate to bring environmental education resources to the Tahoe Basin. As stated in our mission and goals, STEEC is “dedicated to bringing high quality environmental education programs and projects to Lake Tahoe youth.”
STEEC has created and implemented new programs for Lake Tahoe Unified School District (LTUSD) schools, reaching thousands of students each year. These programs have been so successful they have been adopted into local school curriculum and are being duplicated around the Lake Tahoe area. STEEC has collaborated and partnered with LTUSD for nearly 6 years. STEEC’s constant goal is to establish and implement programs that are hands-on, interdisciplinary, and standards-based in the classroom and the natural environment for place-based education.
STEEC works with multiple Lake Tahoe agencies and organizations in a collaborative effort to engage visitors, community members, and children to connect with the land and to become active stewards of our forests. We could not accomplish all of our school programs without our growing list of partners as well as exceptional committed community volunteers. Our STEEC partners include:
STEEC values our partnerships and we are always looking for ways to improve and to sustain the future of our programs.
