February 22, 2024 - Kathleen Garness In person at the Prospect Heights Public Library and on Zoom.
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM to present “Inspiring Young Artists Through Nature and Conservation”.
Young people are wanting more active roles in conservation leadership, but often we need to be creative in outreach to identify and nurture them.
Kathleen’s talk will highlight many of the outreach efforts with which she’s been involved for the past fifteen years, and talk about new opportunities for young people to develop their capacity to see and understand the natural world around them
through art and close observation.
