The Promise of Place Network is a grassroots effort to build support for people, schools, and organizations engaged in efforts that use natural and cultural contexts to help people to know to care about the places where they live. We are interested in helping educators find resources to help them get started, organizations connect across state boundaries, and professionals connect across disciplines.
It is free to join the network. Submit information about your organization by clicking here. Network members will be able to post events to our Calendar, publicize and spread the word about their organization, and connect with other professionals in the field.

Fellsmere Pond Exhibits
Students work with the local metropolitan parks department to design educational interpretive exhibits for an urban park. They develop a walking tour, accompanying brochure, and two Quests that lure local visitors to explore the pond and park. The Quests include artificial rocks crafted through the school's partnership with the local zoo. Students are also doing habitat restoration projects at the park.
