Talk about Minnesota Nice…their Master Naturalist program has invited us to participate in their annual conference! Check it out: The Gathering Partners annual conference brings together people from all corners of Minnesota to learn about our state's natural resources. The conference is hosted jointly by University of Minnesota Extension program teams for Forestry, Aquatic Invasive Species, Minnesota Master Naturalist, and Citizen Science. They have field trips, workshops, key notes and programs scheduled.
Citizen scientists provide valuable data to monarch conservation through the Integrated Monarch Monitoring Program (IMMP). To learn about how to count monarchs and carefully describe their habitats, please consider attending one of our training sessions. Registration and additional details available here.
We are looking for motivated individuals based in Northern Wisconsin to form a volunteer team of leaders who help carry out physical tasks (primarily non-aquatic invasive plant removal) benefitting our local plant communities, especially SNAs, and teach others how to do those tasks. Come learn how you can be a part of the team!
This 2 day training will teach you the basics of plant community composition on local high quality SNAs, threats to the communities, removal of invasive plants, and how to teach and lead a group of volunteers at an invasive plant removal workday.
Explore the cultural, economic, and environmental impacts of global climate change on Lake Superior and its surrounding communities. Through a combination of tours, talks and field activities, you’ll see firsthand the impacts of climate change and learn how to effectively communicate the impacts. Registration and more details here.
