ABOUT

Our intention is to connect with a diverse group of students and residents to facilitate the learning of natural resources. We strive to foster awareness, mindfulness, and a sense of stewardship for our local environment. 

Facilitation of our accessible education and outreach programs, whether delivered in-person or virtually, is designed to  lead to lifelong positive action for all participants. 

This Conservation Connection hub will remain as a space to house content even after we’ve returned to the classroom.

 

Join us in conserving our natural resources for tomorrow’s generations
