ANCA Peer CONNECTS: Michigan

Thursday, November 3rd
Chippewa Nature Center — Midland, Mich.
Check-in starts at 9:30 am. Welcome at 10:00 am

We invite you to join your Michigan nature center peers for an in-person ANCA Peer CONNECTS meeting at Chippewa Nature Center in Midland, Mich., on Thursday, November 3rd. This meeting is for any professional in our nature center and environmental learning center community — we welcome both ANCA members and non-members along with professionals from outside Michigan to attend.

We plan to have a choice of facilitated discussions on topics including Land Management and partnerships with your local CISMA, DNR Grants, and Camp Programming. Along with these discussions, we plan to allow time to gather and reconnect with peers we haven’t seen but on a computer screen for far too long!

ANCA Peer CONNECTS bring together nature and environmental learning center leaders who share a common challenge or who represent a specific type of organization. They are available to ANCA Members and non-members.

In ANCA Peer CONNECTS, all attendees contribute to a shared dialogue that brings out an abundance of perspectives, possibilities, and renewed energy. We invite you to participate in the discussion and bring your questions, challenges, and solutions to the conversation.
