Learn. Connect. Act.

10am-3pm EST

This October, the Next in Nature group at Cincinnati Nature Center will host our 3rd annual Youth Conservation Summit. Read below for details!



The summit is a series of presentations held over zoom where students can learn about conservation. This year's theme: protecting and appreciating nature. It will be a great opportunity for young artists to learn how others combine both conservation and art. The focus will not just be on art, however. Any student with an interest in conservation is encouraged to attend to learn how to funnel their passion into action. 


The summit is a great way for students to get involved in conservation, learn important planning and presentation skills, and connect with other like-minded teens devoted to making a difference.

There will be two keynote speakers, several 15 minute sessions, and two student presentations. Stay tuned for the speaker line up!


The summit will be held on Saturday, October 2 from 10am-3pm with a half-hour break at noon. Not free the whole time? Pop in and out as needed!



Though it is the Youth Conservation Summit, all ages are welcome!

What do we mean by “conservation”? Well, conservation can be a lot of things. It could be engaging in sustainable actions at home, like recycling or composting, or cleaning up a natural area in your neighborhood like a river or field. It could be scientific research on plants and animals, teaching kids about the environment, managing a wildlife area, protecting native bees, planting trees, or fighting for clean air or water for all. Basically, conservation is any action that humans take to nurture and protect our amazing planet.
