Ken Leinbach is a nationally recognized educator and leader in community-based environmental education. Starting from a single trailer in a high-crime city park,Ken has had fun leading the grass-roots effort to create and grow the dynamic Urban Ecology Center.
Known for its environment, education and social innovation the Center provides consistent contact to nature for tens of thousands of central city students and residents across Milwaukee each year. In this formula environmental education becomes a tool for inspiring urban revitalization. It works — and is capturing the attention of urban planners and educators across the globe. With his contagious energy, Ken speaks on a number of topics including: urban education, community organizing, environmental issues, finding abundance, the power of story, sustainable design, the need for “near-by” nature, leadership, fundraising, and green living.
