HASP Monthly Program | JANUARY 2023
“A Nature-Rich Vision”
Recorded: TUESDAY, January 10, 2023
The mission of the ODC Network is to advance outdoor education and conservation in West Michigan. Founded in 1999, this nonprofit organization’s umbrella has expanded to include the Outdoor Discovery Center, the DeGraaf Nature Center, the Macatawa River Greenway, and Project Clarity, among others. As the ODC Network continues its mission, their future vision includes exciting new projects and partnerships that will connect people, land, and nature.
This program will be presented by Travis Williams, CEO of the ODC Network, who has spent over 20 years as a nonprofit business leader. Travis grew the Outdoor Discovery Center from an idea on paper to a regional resource with 105 employees serving over 100,000 people annually, and he considers establishing three nature-based preschools, launching Project Clarity, and the expansion of an eco-tourism business among his many accomplishments.
