About Us

The Rochester Ecology Partners improve community connectedness through the power of nature. Our organization works to improve individual, community, and environmental well-being and contributes to an educational system that connects people in our city to nature, the places they live, and each other. 

By building these relationships we will encourage the adoption of an ecological mindset in our community where there is a better understanding of the relationship between our social and environmental systems. Our community’s most pressing challenges can be solved with an approach that considers how everything is connected.

Our strategy for achieving our mission
