Reese Institute for Conservation of Natural Resources

At LR, we've always believed in combining conservation with responsible economic development, whether in our own back yard, halfway across the country, or all the way around the world.

The Reese Institute for the Conservation of Natural Resources will give our students an unprecedented opportunity to do exactly that: to participate in a curriculum that honors that old bumper sticker, "think globally, act locally."

Through service learning, scholarship, fieldwork, travel opportunities and internships, students will have the chance to positively impact their immediate community, while setting their sights on the larger conservation issues of the nation and beyond.

The Reese Institute is affiliated with the undergraduate Environmental Science and Policy program as well as the graduate program in Sustainability Studies.
