Young children have the right to a say in matters of relevance to them. And, research is showing that they are capable of exercising this right, given developmentally appropriate opportunities. Exciting new approaches to lifting children’s voices in both research approaches and educational practice provide expressions of this fundamental right.

With the rise of the internet and the impact of big data, the world has changed, but the standard model for strategic planning hasn’t been updated to meet the demands of this new world. It’s time to throw out your strategic plan and embrace a strategic planning framework. Concepts birthed by the shapers of the internet such as agile principles, working in sprints, iterative project development, and more should inform your strategic framework.
Hurricane Florence dumped as much as three feet of water on parts of Southeastern North Carolina. This occurred only 1 year after massive flooding in Houston, Texas. Epic rainfall events, while still 'epic,' may no longer be considered infrequent. What does this mean for engineering design standards? What storms should we consider? Where is it OK to develop? What guidance does the engineering code of conduct provide? Insights to these questions and more are the focus of "It just rained two feet, now what?"

Honey Bees in the Pollination Networks of Natural Areas? An Overview and Best Management Practices
In the April 2019 installment of NAAEE's monthly webinar series we heard from Nicole Ardoin (link is external) (Stanford University) and Judy Braus (Executive Director, NAAEE), taking a deep dive into NAAEE's Toolkit for Engaging People in Conservation Action and discussing how to plan a conservation education program, inspire a conservation ethic, and increase the impact of behavior change efforts.
Bamboo is a large perennial grass that has been used as an ornamental plant in the United States for many years. Most imported bamboos that are fast growing, highly invasive, and difficult to contain. This is because the root structures of most invasive varieties are made up of large networks of underground rhizomes that must be targeted to kill the plant. This webinar will cover the biology, identification and management of several common invasive bamboo species in the southeastern U.S.

Green Readiness, Response, and Recovery: Stewardship of natural resources in the context of disturbance
Massive social-ecological disturbance and disasters have struck the United States in recent years. In 2017 alone, the country dealt with devastation, destruction, and displacement from three major hurricanes, a nearly unprecedented wildfire season, and senseless acts of violence and terrorism. The magnitude of these disasters requires appropriate, large-scale coordinated emergency response and recovery efforts. Both research and practice demonstrate that natural resource stewardship activities can play a role in helping communities to recover, heal, and become more resilient.
