The CREEC Network

The California Regional Environmental Education Community (CREEC) is a network supporting the environmental literacy of California’s students.

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 is supported by Regional Coordinators. Regional Coordinators provide professional learning opportunities and resources to educators as well as foster communications among schools and organizations interested in supporting the environmental literacy of California’s teachers and students.

Each CREEC Region can provide information about additional resources available in each county. More information about the California County Superintendents Educational Services Association (CCSESA) can be found on the CCSESA External link opens in new window or tab. Web site.
