Watch CREA’s Annual Meeting

We held our Annual Meeting virtually in 2020, via Zoom and recorded it so those who were unable to attend can watch it at their convenience. We heard reports from various committees, including reports from staff about CREA’s core programs in the schools, at summer camp, and in the community. See below for an index of the meeting so you can jump into whichever sections are of greatest interest to you. We highly recommend the reports by program staff! Sadly, our Nature Trivia polls do not appear in the recording so you can’t test your trivia knowledge here…
