From a member of the EarthSense Alliance.
The EarthSense Alliance is a collaborative of six residential environmental education organizations in Minnesota. It was formed to open the door to larger funding opportunities based on our collective impact across the state of Minnesota. Since forming the collaborative, we have received funding for capital improvements, curriculum development, and scholarships in all six programs. The EarthSense Alliance convenes annual meetings (sometimes more) of the Directors and Education Directors. These meetings have allowed us to work together to solve problems we face and brainstorm about the direction of residential environmental education in the state.
