NAMI TESTIMONIALS

“This was the best workshop/conference I have been to. Each activity/session felt intentional and had a purpose for each person in the room. I have learned so much and feel connected to a community that values nature and our native organisms. I have loved every minute of this trip and can see the hard work everyone put into make it amazing. ...I am so grateful for this experience.”

“I would thoroughly recommend NAMI to any educator interested in developing their understanding of the role of monarchs and milkweed in the environment, but also how to use community science and data collection in the classroom, engaging students with a variety of learning styles, as well as providing students the opportunity to appreciate their environment in meaningful ways."

“The instructors were knowledgeable and friendly. This was a comfortable space to ask questions and learn what we needed without feeling like I was behind.”
