Amna Osman has over 15 years of experience as a senior executive in the public health sector. Aside from her interest in public health, she is active in environmental conservation and sustainability. Amna Osman is a board member with The Stewardship Network.
A nonprofit organization based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, The Stewardship Network (TNS) is a conservation group that connects, equips, and mobilizes organizations and people to care for the land and water in their communities. It sees people as an overlooked resource in the effort to protect the environment. The group believes that organized and concerned individuals from different backgrounds can work together to carry out effective conservation efforts.
The organization develops and supports collaborative local conservation communities that it calls Clusters. So far, TNS has formed 13 Clusters, mostly located around the Great Lakes area, as well as a group known as The Stewardship Network: New England. Participants in these clusters include park departments, corporate landowners, municipal and township staff, tribe groups, volunteers, private businesses, and other interested groups.
TNS has a monthly webcast every second Wednesday at noon. The group will hold its next annual conference, the 2017 Science, Practice & Art of Restoring Native Ecosystems Conference, on January 13 and 14, 2017 at the Kellogg Center in East Lansing, Michigan.
