Driven to Discover Partner Wins State Environmental Education Award

Congratulations to the Milwaukee Urban Ecology Center & Ken Leinbach, recipient of the 2016 Dave Engleson Award from the Wisconsin Association for Environmental Education. The prestigious David Engleson Award is awarded to individuals, agencies, and organizations that make significant contributions to the field of environmental education.

A brief video about the award recipient includes images and an interview with a youth participant in the University of Minnesota Driven to Discover program. Urban Ecology Center was a key partner in helping University of Minnesota Extension faculty develop and test the Driven to Discover program, which involves youth and adult leaders in citizen science and conducting their own scientific investigations. A brief video on the Driven to Discover site describes an Urban Ecology Center investigation to compare bird species in different habitats.

Visit the Driven to Discover website to learn more about the program for youth and adult leaders.
