32nd Annual Tri-State Early Childhood Conference

The Science of Nature
October 2nd, 2021

Join us at the Hillview Recreation Area in Hinton, Iowa

Join us for the 32nd Annual Tri-State Early Childhood Conference: Reimagined. Our theme this year is "The Science of Nature" which will take you on a journey to incorporate nature and environmental education into you program. If this past year has shown us anything, it is the importance of connecting children with their environment and encouraging environmental stewardship that will last a lifetime. This year's conference will be held at the Hillview Recreation Area in Hinton, IA. Due to the hands-on and intimate nature of the conference, attendance will be limited to 75 participants, so register early! Speakers will include Sarah Roberts of Nebraska Extension and Hanna Pinneo of the Nebraska Forest Service. Lunch and snacks will be provided. For more information or questions, please contact Sarah Roberts at We can't wait to experience nature with you!
