EEC programs would not be possible without the support and collaboration of our partners and supporters. It is only possible for students to learn to appreciate our natural resources by understanding how fragile they really are. This passion is not developed in a classroom; it can only happen in a natural setting. Our partners provide a local venue for activities. These experts also provide students with a wealth of knowledge and information that can only come from someone who understands the delicate balance between water consumers and conservation. The sustainability of this program is in the hands of local agencies who agree that youth can really make a difference in curtailing the future depletion of ground water in the Verde Watershed. The EEC is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
