Earth Partnership collaborates with diverse communities to create vibrant outdoor learning spaces using a curriculum-based 10-step ecological restoration process. Through facilitated relationship-building and dialogue, communities identify their shared stewardship vision and the ways EP can help make it a reality.

To engage educators and learners of all ages and backgrounds in community-based ecological restoration for healthy environments.
