U.S. Events

Individuals in the fields of natural resource conservation and environmental management increasingly need to demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency of projects and programs, particularly in terms of environmental outcomes. The purpose of the Environmental Evaluators Network is to:

  • Foster connections among evaluators and evaluation consumers.
  • Grow the body of knowledge of environmental program and policy evaluation.
  • Foster the collaborative development of products for advancing the field.

    The Network is comprised of environmental, conservation, and natural resource evaluators and evaluation consumers. Individuals from academia, consulting organizations, foundations, government agencies, and non-profit organizations are all welcome to participate. The membership is international.

    Since 2006, NFWF and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have co-hosted an annual two-day forum in Washington, D.C. in June.  Each year, over 100 environmental evaluators and practitioners from the U.S. and abroad attend the event to network and share innovative evaluation approaches.
