Restoring Communities of Land and People

The Marianist Environmental Education Center (MEEC) is an environmental education community in the Catholic tradition. In Mary's hope-filled spirit, we preserve and act in communion with the land and educate other communities in sustainability through ecology-based simple living, social justice and spirituality.

The Mount St. John Nature Preserve was named an Ohio Natural Landmark by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources in 1988, recognizing it as "an outstanding environmental education area possessing exceptional value in illustrating and interpreting the natural heritage of Ohio." MEEC won the 2005 Creation Care Award from the National Religious Partnership for the Environment for our restoration and education work.


Call for submissions for our 2014 art and education exhibit, In a Changing World, is available here.
