Network for Nature
The Nature Conservancy and the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission bring together volunteer leaders and coordinators representing the various agencies and groups affiliated with the Volunteer Stewardship Network to "Network for Nature." This opportunity to share ideas and to inspire collaboration is a mix of social networking and discussion over lunch. Typically these gatherings are held regionally (in northern, central, and southern Illinois). Notes from more recent "Network for Nature" gatherings are below.
