New Conservation Education Council calls for nominations
What's the best way to implement a regional vision for conservation education?
That's the task ahead for members of the Intertwine's Conservation Education Council, a group of leaders charged with developing that vision, as well as working with regional partners and conservation advocates to support the Intertwine's mission.
The Intertwine has begun accepting nominations for the Conservation Education Council, which was formed based on a recommendation from the Intertwine Conservation Education Task Force. The task force, which convened in January, released an education plan earlier this month.
"What we have here is a powerful message about engaging the region's residents in the daunting challenge of protecting and restoring our earth. It will take open minds, caring hearts and willing hands," said Metro Councilor Rex Burkholder. "The great work of the Task Force sets us on a clear path. Their recommendations, including convening a Conservation Education Council of regional leaders, give me hope for the future."
