Socially-Distanced Community Conservation Partnerships

Over the past four years, the University of Connecticut Conservation Training Partnerships program has engaged more than 220 high school students and adult volunteers in applying innovative geospatial technology to address real-world conservation issues, resulting in over 70 local environmental projects throughout the state. Due to COVID-19, the program transitioned to an online format this past year.

The UConn Conservation Training Partnerships team, Nicole Freidenfelds from the UConn Natural Resources Conservation Academy, Laura Cisneros, Dave Dickson, and Cary Chadwick of our UConn CLEAR program, members from the UConn Natural Resources & the Environment department and the UConn Neag School of Education, created a presentation on the program’s transition to virtual instruction.

The presentation, “Socially-Distanced Community Conservation Partnerships”, won Facilitators’ Choice at the 2021 STEM for All Video Showcase.
