The Regional Environmental Education Forum (or REEF) is the Bay of Plenty branch of the New Zealand Association for Environmental Education.  REEF is a network of people working in or interested in environmental education. 

The forum meets in three different locations: Tauranga, Rotorua and the Eastern Bay.  The groups in each area organise opportunities for discussions, networking, project work, problem solving and sharing resources based on the needs of their local members.
