Missouri Environmental Literacy Advisory Board

Meetings Second Thursdays in May and December
MDC and DNR usually take turns hosting our convenings. 
Due to COVID-19, the December 2020 meeting will be held virtually.

Our next meeting will be held Thursday, Dec. 10 via Zoom.
Timing TBD. 

Organizations engaged in environmental and sustainability education, health and wellness, or educational equity are invited to attend the 3rd of 4 MELAB meetings devoted to the development of a statewide Missouri Green Schools partner network. This meeting is open to all who want to help Missouri Schools improve the health and wellness of students and staff, reduce environmental impact, and provide effective environmental and sustainability education and join a team of like-minded people.  

Why join the MGS Partner Network?

If you belong to a school, agency, non-profit, business or other organization whose mission includes an interest in what Missorians know and understand about their environment, then consider these questions:
