Join a February 15 community gathering to grow our region’s environmental movement
February 15 community gathering will focus on insights gained from a regional study of environmental organizations, and launch a Greater Rochester Environmental Community Directory
Rochester Ecology Partners will host an open presentation and discussion of a regional Environmental Organization Community Analysis on Thursday, February 15 at the Phillis Wheatley Library, 33 Dr. Samuel McCree Way in the City of Rochester. In addition, a new, public online resource, the Greater Rochester Environmental Community Directory, will be formally launched and introduced at the event. Chris Widmaier, founder and Executive Director of Rochester Ecology Partners, will lead the presentation and discussion, along with Simeon Banister, President and CEO of Rochester Area Community Foundation.
The event runs from 4:00 PM to 5:45 p.m. Registration for the event is at Rochester Ecology Partners’ website, www.rochesterecologypartners.org/events.
With support from Rochester Area Community Foundation and Emil Muller Foundation, Rochester Ecology Partners spent 2023 gathering and processing extensive information about the composition, missions, initiatives, successes, and challenges faced by dozens of organizations dedicated to improving community well-being and the environment across Greater Rochester. At the February 15 event, Rochester Ecology Partners will present the process, results, and insights from this analysis, and invite attendees to discuss next steps toward a more connected and impactful regional environmental movement.
Rochester Ecology Partners serves members of the Greater Rochester community who need opportunities to learn about nature, connect with their community, and join the movement for a sustainable, just, and hopeful future.
