Essential primer for creative problem solvers, community leaders, environmental advocates, and educators in cities. Explore case studies from the Urban Ecology Center in Milwaukee, with Executive Director Ken Leinbach. See how degraded parks, neglected green spaces, and brownfields are transformed into vital urban habitat for native plant species and varied wildlife. Environment education is at the core of this work.
Scholarships and team discounts are available.
Through interactive sessions with small group break-outs, leading members of the Urban Ecology Center’s path-breaking staff will guide you through sessions on real-world topics such as place-based environmental community engagement, systems thinking, volunteerism, equity and inclusion, organizational structure, business planning for non-profits, partnership building, and program evaluation.
You will see how practical tools can expand your work, with numerous opportunities to learn from each other in the group. You will be a participant in a co-learning space rather than a passive recipient of scripted content.
