ECOcentric Lecture Series: Walking in a Native Meadow

ECOcentric Lecture Series | Get out of your head and into nature!

Spreading ecological awareness, fostering environmental literacy, and inspiring activation.

Ecocentric is defined as having a serious concern for environmental issues. It is a mindset that values the entire environment and all life within rather than only what is useful to humans. In other words, it is a deliberate shift toward the balance that can be achieved when we make nature our center rather than ourselves.

The human experience is heightened when we nurture our fundamental relationship with the earth. As we navigate a rapidly changing world, fighting ecological unconsciousness will be paramount to our success and sustainability as a species. Join us in this series as we learn more
about the natural world and explore the actions we can all take at home to seek harmony with nature.

Through a variety of educational lectures and immersive field experiences with WCT staff and professionals, adults will gain a holistic foundation in four major conservation topics: birds and wildlife, regenerative farming, watersheds, and habitat stewardship. Students will gain a sense of ecological awareness and feel empowered to enact change in their own lives.

ECOcentric Lecture Series: Walking in a Native Meadow

With over 48 million acres of traditional lawn in the U.S. today, it is clear that many of us have an untapped opportunity to contribute to conservation in a meaningful way. By conscientiously choosing plants in our landscapes that are native to our region, we can begin to reverse some of the habitat loss that imperils ecosystem function and food webs. Our yards can effectively become sources of biodiversity! Join Stewardship Manager John Holback on an in depth tour of our one-acre wildflower meadow; we’ll identify plant species and learn about some of the pollinators, insects, and birds that depend on this habitat. Students will learn tips on how to start a meadow of their own,
no matter how small.
