Friends of the Arboretum Luncheon-Lecture Series: Local Lore and World Wonders

Jun 02, 2018

Earth Partnership (EP) is an outgrowth of the UW-Madison Arboretum and its mission to inspire ecological restoration based on Aldo Leopold’s land ethic. Since 1991, Earth Partnership has generated collaborations with a wide range of conservation organizations, agencies and educational institutions to build the capacity of students, educators, and communities to restore native habitat on schoolyards and natural areas. Join Earth Partnership for an inspirational talk about what they have learned along the way, from sowing the first seeds of Earth Partnership at Aldo Leopold Elementary School in Madison to the development of Indigenous Arts and Sciences, Latino Earth Partnership, and Global Earth Partnership initiatives. As one nine-year-old participant explained: “The habitat in the world is getting less and less; by planting one tiny seed we can help the world.”
