“We are looking for professionals, legislatures, teachers, and anyone who wishes to get involved to participate and help us spread the word about our teach in. Let’s make this a national movement. Let’s get September 1st to be proclaimed National Biodiversity Day. Let’s make a difference.”
1) Webinar Presenters- we are still looking for presenters for our webinar series. The presenter can select the topic (anything biodiversity), the date/time and the audience. We provide the webinar server, all the presenter needs is a computer with a webcam. These take place Monday- Friday on 9/22 through 9/26.
2) Field Experiences for 9/21 and 9/27. The students envision kicking off National Biodiversity Teach In Week with events all over the country where the public could learn about the biodiversity in their community. These could be talks, nature walks, presentations, and even stewardship opportunities. No need to re-invent the wheel, organizations can use what they already do (since everything is dependent on biodiversity) and host that event on 9/21 and 9/27. We would advertise the event via social media and directly to schools.
