Other The CREEC Network provides a vital link for both “formal” classroom teachers and “non-formal” educators, and has done so since it began operation in 1997. Its mission is to (1) develop a statewide network of knowledgeable environmental education professional development and resources to educators, kindergarten through grade twelve, in their region; and (2) identify and promote only high-quality, standards-based environmental education materials, projects, and programs.
