Come join us at the Teejop Hocira Community Center for a day of service and learning centered on stewardship of resources that are vital to healthy and thriving communities. Through a partnership between the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) and Earth Partnerships, and the Teejop Hocira Community Center, we invite youth and their families to participate in activities designed to connect attendees to research and engagement conducted by individuals and groups associated with UW–Madison and within the Community, and ways to get involved in issues that affect our daily lives, and are especially relevant to Indigenous communities. The structure of the program is as follows:

  • 3:30-5:00: Seed Planting and Land Restoration Activity (Youth)
    UW Earth Partnerships will lead students in this service project designed to restore ground around the Community Center and learn about the connection between ecology of land and its relationship to quality of life.
