Environmental Career Month

Let's celebrate Earth Day all month long.

Event Details

Environmental Career Month was a month-long virtual event hosted by the College of Natural Resources’ (CNR) in April of 2020. The goal was to help high school and community college students gain better insight in to types of careers you can pursue with a major in the College of Natural Resources. By popular request, we have posted the recorded sessions and hope they will be a great resource for students, parents, teachers, and counselors.
