Understanding Your Audience's Connection to Nature
A feeling of connection to nature (C2N) is an important outcome of nature-based programming. C2N predicts, among other things, positive attitudes toward the environment and actions to protect the earth. How can you understand the impact of your nature-based programs on your audience’s C2N? This webinar featuring Dr. Martha Monroe and Gabby Salazar from University of Florida will showcase a new practical tool for developing an effective approach to assessing C2N in children and youth.

Cities Enhancing Public Spaces with Nature Play Webinar
Cities are installing nature play spaces to foster outdoor learning and play, improve children’s health and wellness, activate parks, and promote everyday connection to nature. Join us for a discussion on nature play features and the benefits they provide and how two cities prioritized and navigated installation of nature play elements. City case studies provide an insider perspective on engaging youth and residents in co-designing nature play spaces, multi-agency collaboration, accounting for risk & liability, and opportunities to replicate nature play spaces throughout their cities. Nature play space form meets function in this free Enhancing Public Spaces with Nature Play Webinar.

Making the Case: Community Engagement for Equitable Access to Nature
Monday, June 24, 2019
11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (Central Time)
Nature benefits the wellbeing of children and families, possibly more dramatically for those most at risk for poorer outcomes. But it is exactly these children and families who have the least access to quality nature. What would it look like if green spaces and nature-based programs were truly responsive to the needs of the diverse populations they serve? Engaging community residents—adult and child alike—through deep and genuine participatory approaches is key to creation of truly equitable access to nature. Explore these effective engagement practices with Louise Chawla (Professor Emerita, University of Colorado Boulder), Meg Kelly (Healthy Schools Campaign, Space to Grow Director), and Sonya Sankaran (City of Madison).
