Northeast Ohio LNCI Collaborative Partners

NE Ohio LNCI Collaborative partners with local city and county organizations. 

We are undergoing a renewal in leadership and network building in 2019.  Partner information may not be up to date.  Our past information on how to integrate nature into our children’s lives is being reviewed but hopefully still helpful.

Contact Volunteer Leadership to find out how you can work together.
