Conservation Education

For decades, conservation educators have played a pivotal role in effecting community change within The Intertwine. Ultimately, our Conservation Education Initiative aims to spur a cultural shift toward an ethic of stewardship; more time spent outdoors by all residents, enjoying the manifold psychological, physical and spiritual benefits of nature; and behaviors that exhibit a strong commitment to sustainable and nature-supporting practices.
