Outreach for Conservation
EDI believes that including the community in interpretive events and volunteer stewardship activities builds public understanding of the purposes and value of habitat conservation. As citizens’ appreciation for natural open spaces grows, so may appropriate and compatible recreational uses of and support for these lands.
Volunteer environmental stewardship events, weekly volunteer teams in two locations, and conservation interpretive activities involve citizens directly on their local conserved lands.
These events educate community members, youth and adults, about the local environment. EDI works with our conservation partners to provide guided hikes and rides, educational signage and materials, as well as special activities for occasions such as Earth Day, National Public Lands Day, and Endangered Species Day. Look for these on our Events List.
