The Summit is a multi-day virtual event for you to learn and connect with your peers. With a wide variety of programming topics and session formats, you can pick what works best for you, whether you are new in the field, mid-career, or a veteran leader.

The event features different opportunities for you to engage:

CONCURRENT SESSIONS where you actively connect with peers in a variety of formats. Learn more.

WORKSHOPS for you to expand your skill set and learn in-depth on a single topic, while also directly engaging with experts. See the workshops.

FEATURED SPEAKERS who will offer their expertise on current trends and innovation in the field. See the speakers.

NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES will help you grow and strengthen your personal network. With spaces for small group and one-on-one interaction, you can create connections that will endure long after the Summit.

With these experiences and more, the Summit will be an impactful event for all current and future leaders in the nature and environmental learning center field. See the full schedule.

"I've attended so many virtual meetings and seminars this year and the Summit was by far the best-organized and well-planned program I participated in."
