The Great Lakes Earth Partnership program assists teachers in establishing native gardening projects on school sites and incorporates restoration into their curricula to include almost any subject area. The program offers a one-week summer institute and ongoing support from the UW-Madison Arboretum and Urban Ecology Center to help schools with restoration planning and curriculum development.
