WAEE Consortium

View Mission, Vision, History of the WAEE Consortium

Initially funded through an EE Capacity Grant (Cornell University & NAAEE), the WAEE Consortium is now being maintained as a working group of WAEE. It is made up of a diverse representation of “traditional”, i.e. nature centers and “non-traditional” EE organizations, i.e. community groups throughout the state. The purpose of the consortium is to identify and pursue initiatives that will build the capacity of EE in Wisconsin.
