The Urban Tree Alliance is sponsoring a lecture at the Madison Waldorf School entitled “No Child Left Behind”. Lori Barian, of the Great Lakes Waldorf School, will be talking about the importance of connecting children with the surrounding natural environment. As urban areas in the United States expand and our population increasingly is drawn to them, we seek new challenges to fostering a connection to the natural world. The Urban Tree Alliance sees the Urban Forest as a critical link in these connections and is happy to support this event and the work of the Madison Waldorf School.
The lecture will take place on Wednesday, April 24th at 7 pm at the Madison Waldorf School (6510 Schroeder Rd., Madison, WI 53711). A flyer for the event can be downloaded here.
