Well, it has been just a minute since our most recent Educator Network Zoom meet-up! But it was a good one, and we're all snowed in across most of Wisconsin, so it's a good day to get the recording and resources out to you. If you attended, thank you for being a part of such a lively discussion. If you missed it, this is your chance to catch up. For everyone - here is the recording AND a bodacious list of resources shared by the amazing sister duo of Heather Berklund, Wisconsin's first and current Chief State Forester, and Erin Schneider, artist/educator/farmer at Hilltop Community Farm. These bi-annual webinars are always interactive and always incredible. Stay tuned for our Spring Meet-Up on April 4 and join us for our upcoming Winter Wellness Camp webinar series!
