“The University of Wisconsin–Madison Arboretum developed the Earth Partnership program to engage learners of all ages with nature. The program trains teachers to start restoration projects on school sites, where kids can create natural habitats. It also trains them to work the subject of restoration into their curricula.

“A related initiative, the Latino Earth Partnership, reaches youth from diverse backgrounds by incorporating cultural perspectives and Spanish language with environmental stewardship and science. This summer, two UW-Madison undergraduates inspired by the program will lead a version of the Latino Earth Partnership in Quito, Ecuador.”
