full conference artExploring Community: Land, People, Water

July 26 – 29, 2021

Luther College – Decorah, Iowa

How can we re-define “community” to include all land, water, and people?

How can environmental education (EE), conservation, and outdoor recreation work together to support, enhance, and create vibrant, sustainable, resilient, healthy communities for all?

Set the dates aside on your calendar and plan to join the conversation and “explore community.”
