After a year plus of “exploratory” research, ASBPA’s board approved running Blue Flag at its March 2020 board meeting. ASBPA is in the process of finalizing an MOA with the Federation for Environmental Education (FEE – a global NGO that administers Blue Flag and other environmental education programs) and National Wildlife Federation (NWF – FEE’s US-based member organization), to become the US operator of the Blue Flag program.
What Does this Mean?
ASBPA is now soliciting funds for launching the program and organizing the National Workshop! Be on the lookout for correspondence to get agenda feedback.
Due to the on-going economic and social impacts of Covid-19, our original
timeline for implementation is changing. We continue to move forward on the National Workshop and hope to hold it this year with our pilot beginning in 2021.
