Retired from teaching Math, Science and Computers in 2006. Went to work part-time at the most wonderful nature preserve in the US. (I think). I think the nature disconnect is a growing menace in our society in both adults and children. Our organization is trying to get families outside and connecting with nature through a collaboration with the local YMCA and the library.
WI Association for Environmental Education is hosting a 2nd annual Lobby Day Breakfast at theWisconsin League of Conservation Voters (WLCV) Lobby Day on Wednesday March 16th!
Come discover how EE is part of the WLCV’s priorities and how you can support Wisconsin's Children's Outdoor Bill of Rights.
The entire event, including breakfast, is free.
Please plan to join us from 9-10am in Madison on March 16th at the Monona Terrace - Room M/Q.
Continental breakfast will be provided, plus time for networking and the opportunity to learn about the Children's Outdoor Bill of Rights and how you can get involved. After breakfast, join WLCV's schedule of events.
Now is a great time for you to get involved: the Children's Outdoor Bill of Rights is a non-budgetary resolution and may be just what legislators are looking for to stand behind (rather than the politically charged "budget repair" bill). However, in order to be heard above the current turmoil and get legislators' support, it's critical the EE community speaks up to say "EE in our state is important". March 16th is the only organized Lobby Day for this issue during the current legislative session, so come! Have breakfast, learn about advocacy, show your support, get involved and have fun! Registration ends March 9th so, act now to sign up for this exciting EE opportunity!
To sign up for this special WAEE event, contact Betsy Parker at email@example.com or (608) 209-2909. To learn more about WLCV’s Lobby Day and sign up, visit: ConservationVoters.org
Please forward this invitation to others who may be interested!
