The mission of LEEF is to promote environmental education in Florida at all levels and through a variety of methods and resources. Their objectives include:

  • To promote community-based support for environmental issues.
  • To support positive government action on environmental issues.
  • To increase community involvement with the environment through education.
  • To facilitate communication among environmental educators.
  • To use education as a change mechanism toward a society that lives on renewable resources.

The UCF Arboretum shares these values and partners with LEEF by having one of our staff members serving on the Board of Directors. More information can be found at http://leef-florida.org/
