The Coalition is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that works through partnerships to promote environmental education. Its members are a diverse group of businesses, non-profit organizations, government agencies, municipalities, clubs, and educational institutions whom all share the mission of environmental education and stewardship.
These organizations work together to pool resources, form partnerships, and plan the two-day Earth Week Fair that takes place at the QCCA Expo Center in Rock Island, IL each April. In addition, the Coalition produced an Environmental Education Guide in 2007 for the Quad City Area, which serves as a comprehensive listing of educational opportunties. The Guide lists tours and field trips, presentations and activities, educational resources, special events and clubs and groups.
To further its mission of environmental education all year long, the Coalition created this Web site to keep citizens informed of environmental issues, volunteer opportunities and special events that happen throughout the year.
