Academic Projects/Field Study


The Kreher Preserve & Nature Center provides Natural Resources Management (NRM) students unparalleled opportunities to complete hands-on projects working with real land, people, and resources.  This valuable experience is an irreplaceable part of the curriculum designed to prepare students for further study or nature-based careers.

At the Kreher Preserve & Nature Center, student volunteers lead hikes, assist with nature programs, and learn about other aspects of park operations.  Previous students have participated in special projects such as GIS mapping, creating interpretive signage and conducting wetland ecology research.  Business, communications, and journalism students are also involved with the KPNC, helping the message of the KPNC and the resources if has to offer reach the community.
