Host: National Informal STEM Education Network

During this workshop, attendees will learn about successful strategies for using their outdoor space to engage meaningfully with audiences of all ages, while also integrating sustainability practices. Presenters will share their tips and experience around creating garden spaces, pocket parks, enhanced trails, revitalized outdoor areas by removing invasive species, and much more. Join and discover new ways to utilize your outdoor spaces for more effective visitor engagement while also putting sustainability into practice at your museum.

The projects discussed during this workshop are part of the NISE Network’s Sustainable Futures initiative to support museums and similar cultural organizations in their efforts to integrate sustainability into all aspects of their institution, including decision-making, operations, programs, and community partnerships. Informal educators who participated in the fellowship program were introduced to sustainability science and practices, and provided with resources and support to work on a sustainability-related project at their institution.
