The CREEC Network is a program of the California Department of Education. The CREEC Network fosters regional partnerships throughout the state of California to promote environmental education and environmental literacy by providing teachers with access to high quality professional learning opportunities and education resources. Along with statewide sponsors and partners, each of the 11 California CREEC Regions provides professional learning opportunities and resources to educators as well as fosters communications among schools and organizations interested in supporting the environmental literacy of California’s teachers and students.
Each CREEC Region aligns with the California County Superintendents Educational Services Association (CCSESA) Regions and can provide information about additional resources available in each county. More information about CCSESA can be found on the CCSESA website.
