The Biennial Conference on University Education in Natural Resources provides a unique opportunity for university-based natural resource educators from across the country to share and explore pedagogical innovations and strategies. The three-day event combines plenary as well as break out sessions that encompass diverse subject matter and perspectives.
While the conference focuses on college and university content, it welcomes the broad spectrum of programming that includes extension and non-formal natural resources education, which also provides valuable insight into best practices that shape traditional educational programming.
The biennial conference originated in the 1990s, and over the past decade has continued to evolve and provide natural resources educators with information on national trends, groundbreaking teaching methods and resources that foster a meaningful educational experience. Past hosts include:
