Purpose and Description

Increasing urbanization, habitat loss, climate change, invasive species, water pollution, and other factors threaten the function and viability of ecosystems across North Carolina.

Enhance environmental literacy among participants through theoretical and applied approaches. Increase participant knowledge of essential ecological and biological processes and their impacts to human and environmental health. Participants will have a better understanding of ecosystem connectivity and balance. Connect participants with local resources and volunteer opportunities in order to engage in local, regional, and statewide activism.

Target Audience

All that have an interest in learning about and conserving the biodiversity of North Carolina are welcome.
