Our Mission

To promote & implement excellence in natural resource, outdoor and environmental education for all Alaskans.



Environmental Education in Challenging, Corona Virus Times

At ANROE, we’re all about teaching kids about Alaska’s natural resources. Especially getting them outdoors – which can be done while practicing social distancing at the same time. Right now students and educators (and some parents) may all be at home. We offer one-stop shopping for creative solutions! Linked here is a round-up of on-line resources, webinars, and virtual field trips for educators and parents to help create the best educational experiences ever during these challenging times. Enjoy!

What ANROE Does

ANROE collaborates with organizations, agencies, & school districts to provide education resources, training, & networking opportunities about Alaska natural resources. Through its newsletter, mailing list & forums, ANROE members share information about environmental education tools, techniques, employment & professional development opportunities. ANROE is funded by memberships & sponsors.

Environmental education integrates an understanding of scientific concepts and societal needs and is designed to develop students that are environmentally literate. An environmentally literate person understands the implications of his/her actions, and has the skills to critically think about and make responsible choices. These skills transfer to every facet of  life.

ANROE is the Alaska affiliate of the North American Association for Environmental Education.
