New Year and New Members

Hi everyone,

I am one of the Sustainable Cities and Communities group moderators. You can read more about me here: You can read about Taralynn and Mike, the other moderators of our group, by clicking on the links to their bios on the group's landing page.

We've had quite a few people join our group in this first month of the year and I just wanted to extend a welcome! I am looking forward to getting to know the members of this group, share resources, ideas, and opportunities, and form new collaborations. If you’d like, please take a moment to reply, introduce yourself, and answer these questions:

1. What are you hoping to get out of this group?
2. What age group do you work with?
3. What are you, or the organization you work for, doing to adapt to the pandemic?



Hello All! my name is Zachary Ashbrook! What I hope to get out of this group are ways to engage in environmental education in an urban setting. I live in the second biggest city of New York State. The age group I've worked with in the past is 2 years old all the way up to 16 years of age. What I'm doing to adapt to the pandemic is going back to school to get my Master's degree and finding ways to digitize my tried and true lesson plans that I've used in the past.
