Nature Centers: Relevant in the Age of Climate Change?
Conference:2019 Conference Lexington, Kentucky
What is the role of nature centers in the age of climate change? This session is designed for nature center staff who are interested in collectively problem solving how we can play a critical role in mobilizing people to take action on climate change at the community scale. Approximately 30 participants worked in groups to brainstorm responses to the big question, as well as: How do nature centers communicate their role as climate conveners to their communities? and Who else do we need to work with? See attached notes from the session. We have a follow-up Zoom call with participants on November 21 to discuss what progress we have made in our efforts to be relevant in the age of climate change. We hope to build a network that will come together periodically to support each other and track progress. Please contact Michelle Eckman if you would like to join that Zoom call.
