In 2005 the Environmental Education Exchange, through a grant from the North American Wetland Conservation Act (NAWCA) performed a review and evaluation of environmental education materials and programs from five different wetland conservation projects supported by NAWCA in different parts of Mexico. The outcome of this study is a report that gathers the most effective tools and strategies, as well as lessons learned from all these projects and presents "Best Practices for Wetlands Education in Mexico." The Exchange plans to organize five regional training workshops geared toward conservation biologists and project managers in the SJV region interested in using environmental education as a tool for achieving their conservation goals. The workshops will also include a presentation of these best practices, as well as the North American Association for Environmental Education's Guidelines for Excellence in Environmental Education. Participants will receive a copy of the guidelines, recently translated into Spanish, and will have an opportunity to work through the process of creating an environmental education resource for their own specific programs, implementing the recommendations from these two documents. The Exchange will collect participants' experiences in the use of environmental education for their programs and present them in a final report to the SJV.
