We've been offering free environmental lectures for 20 years, and we'd be happy to have you join us. All lectures will be at 7:30 PM in the Hawkins-Conard Student Center auditorium [unless alternative venue indicated].
This center anchors environmental education at the 298-acre Black Fork Wetlands Preserve. Parking, a bus drop-off, and a boardwalk facilitate access to numerous habitats. School groups and community members all use this facility, that is open during daylight hours. Our observation tower is a terrific spot for birders of all ages!
We manage five environmental preserves that support education, undergraduate and faculty research, and regional habitat conservation. The Preserve Manager is Dr. Richard Stoffer. Students may become involved in studies of the biological and physical attributes and processes that characterize these preserves. Each preserve contains unique habitat and wildlife and thus offers a variety of study opportunities.
