Our faculty and staff take seriously our role in giving back to the community around us and inspiring future natural resources leaders. We enthusiastically present on topics ranging from climate to conservation, the environment to water, to a broad range of audiences, age 5 to 105.

Invite us to Speak

Since 2007, we’ve partnered with Clinton Elementary School — just up the street from Hardin Hall — for an annual winter donation drive. The supplies we collect helps provide warm coats and clothes, as well as basic toiletries, to the nearly 500 children who attend school there.

Caring for Clinton

We also regularly host community-engagement events, including documentary nights featuring expert discussions that take a deep dive into tough conservation issues where the "right" answer isn’t clear cut. Our goal is that you walk away as inspired by natural resources as we are.
