Certification, a process that has been pioneered in several states, is
designed for naturalists and educators working at non-formal nature and
environmental education facilities at parks, arboreta, private preserves,
and more. It gives educators in this arena access to a formal credential
that standardizes and upgrades professional training, allowing educators to
become better trained and perhaps even more marketable.

To download a copy of the Executive Summary of our final survey report,
please visit www.paee.net <http://paee.net/www.paee.net> or
The Executive Summary and full report, *Pennsylvania Non-formal
Environmental Educator Certification*, will both be available soon.
