Conservation Conversation a Great Success!

Over 100 people attended the inaugural Conservation Conversation April 15. My thanks to all who came out, and to Brad Feaster and Jessica Merkling of the DNR Division of Fish and Wildlife and Monica Matthews of the ERC for collaborating with me to make the event a great success!

More About the ERC

The Environmental Resources Center, or ERC, is one of the Centers of Excellence at Indiana – Purdue University Fort Wayne. The mission of the ERC is to promote the understanding and conservation of the natural resources of the region through scientific research, educational opportunities and outreach.

Our research projects include work on the ecology of animals and plants, and also on land management practices. Our “staff” is largely engaged IPFW faculty and their students, both undergraduate and graduate.

In addition to our research endeavors, we actively participate in education and outreach with the community, routinely serving on advisory boards and giving public presentations on a variety of topics.

We invite you to engage with us as works for you. To the right, “like” us on Facebook and sign up for our “monthlyish” newsletter. Sign up with just your name and email (also to right), or take another minute and use the “Join” link above to tell us more about your interests. Thanks!
