The Wisconsin Association for Environmental Education, where I serve as a Board Director, is appreciative of our partnership with UW-Extension. Extension staff have��worked hard to not only secure national funding that supports building capacity for Environmental Education in our state, but have also devoted time and resources to seeing the project through. Thanks to this partnership, our state now has two completed Status & Needs Surveys to help us assess Environmental Education's standing in Wisconsin today. Through this partnership, we have been able to produce a public service announcement and to forge stronger relationships between environmental educators throughout the state. UW-Extension's leadership and readiness to tackle statewide needs in our field is invaluable.

UW-Extension’s Veterans Healing Garden in Milwaukee County brings veterans together. The garden provides a space for community, clarity and peace. It gives our veterans a chance to get together and grow. UW-Extension’s educators provide food to plant and share information with the veterans to help them grow in the best way possible. Watch the video below to learn more about how UW-Extension partners with Wisconsin’s Veterans.
