Heimlich, Joe E.
This document reports on the training of partners for the Environmental Education and Training Partnership (EETAP). The three projects cited include Project Learning Tree (PLT), Project WILD, and Project WET. The main purpose of the training projects was to increase the number of individuals trained in environmental education programs. There are five themes in the training projects: (1) Joint Training Projects; (2) Educator Training Projects; (3) Facilitator Training Projects; (4) Extended Training Projects; and (5) Special Training Projects or Efforts. The reported projects were varied, challenging, and provided the basis for many activities that are continuing in various states. This report is not meant to provide a "how-to" guide for projects initiated or supported by EETAP funds, but rather present a qualitative look at the impact these monies have had on the practice of training for environmental education.
