The Community, Natural Resources & Economic Development (CNRED) is a program area within Cooperative Extension, a division of University of Wisconsin-Extension. CNRED is Wisconsin’s educational network serving people and their communities in seeking positive change. CNRED Educators partner with people in county, state, federal, and tribal governments; community organizations; volunteers; business; and industry.

Backed by University of Wisconsin research, the Milwaukee County CNRED educator is an UW faculty member, jointly supported by Milwaukee County government. CNRED Educators do not program unless our programs are in partnership with Milwaukee County citizens, and based on Milwaukee County community-identified goals and priorities.

CNRED educational programs are unique by training citizens over time to use and apply research, evidence, and data to transform their community.
