Conserve School is a semester school for high school students who are interested in environmental stewardship and outdoor activities.
My love for the outdoors and passion for integrated learning come together at Conserve School. I can often be found hiking the trails of Conserve School's Lowenwood campus with my dogs Copper and Teddy or challenging a student to a game of chess.
I am blessed to live in the Northwoods of Wisconsin with my talented wife Jennifer and our two wonderful daughters. If you can't reach me I am most likely continuing my education by rambling through the forests of Lowenwood, for after all...

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!
Greetings Stefan! Welcome to the forum. I just spent a long time on the Conserve School web site. It's fascinating professionally and also because I happen to have a high school sophomore who's very interesting in environmental studies. Your program looks superb. I look forward to learning much more about it and your life in Wisconsin's Northwoods. I hope you make yourself at home on the forum and let us know about both. The Natural Teachers Network could be a great place to start in terms of joining a group and its discussions. We also have a new discussion in the general area called Children's Chalkboard where people are sharing writing about nature. Hope to see you again soon.
