Park management and conservation faculty joins national Connection to Nature think tank
Jeffrey Skibins, assistant professor of park management and conservation, has been invited to join the national Connection to Nature think tank.
The inaugural event will involve a workshop leading off the North American Association for Environmental Education's Research Symposium. The project will identify strategies to characterize connection to nature in a variety of contexts and explore practitioners' needs for measuring this concept.
The culmination of this first meeting will be the development of a Guide to Conceptualizing Connection to Nature Measures, Assessments, and Strategies, which will be available online and through workshops offered through practitioner networks.
