Are you interested in understanding the dimensions of your audiences’ relationships with nature? Do you need to demonstrate to funders that your programs increase learners’ connection to nature? A new guidebook can help you measure this elusive concept with young children, teenagers, or adults. This webinar will introduce you to the guidebook and the 11 assessment tools it features.
