Technology transfer and education bring valuable research and knowledge from the realm of science to the general public so that it can be used to improve management, inform public policy, and increase human knowledge. Urban Ecos has conducted a number of education and tech transfer projects including:

  • Curricular materials to be used with OpenTreeMap projects
  • Urban ecology publications aimed at the general public
  • The Urban Tree Key, a tool to help identify urban trees
  • How-to webinars and presentations

 Projects, papers, and presentations related to education and technology transfer
