Stewardship Starts With Connection


We inspire and educate people to connect with and become stewards of our natural world.

We do this by –

  • Facilitating high quality, positive, educational experiences in and about the environment.
  • Educating and mentoring future leaders in the fields of environmental education and communication.
  • Bringing the knowledge, skills, and talent within the college to the outside community.
