Together, we’re offering an alternative...
As an independent, alternative voice in
the education side of
the environmental movement, and one
that pays its own
way, the ongoing
support of our mem-
bers remains crucial to
our success. We have established a number of options—in finances, services and goods—for making such contributions to the work of the institute. We
thank each member who helped sustain one of these efforts for thinking of us
during the year.
(The earth education tree is supported around the world
by its volunteer “trunk” of Associate representatives.
Many of them also help us financially. Whenever they appear in the lists that follow we’ve printed
their names in bold letters.)

Annual Report/17
I have now taught EK Level I for 10 years and Level II for about 7 years at St Clair County’s Goodell’s Park—a great spot for it. The best part for me is seeing today’s children outdoors and learning to care about our planet! You know they love it when they attend all 3 days even if it is snowing or raining. EK should be required for all schools all over! Our Earth needs everyone’s help! – Pat Epply
With deep appreciation for the devoted work of the institute. The earth needs our loving understand- ing and we need to understand our place in it as urgently as ever.
–David & Dolores Siegenthaler
