Natural Resources Conservation Academy

NRCA students from the 2013 graduating class.

The 2015-2016 Natural Resources Conservation Academy ( students presented their amazing community projects Monday at the Connecticut Conference of Natural Resources. The students attend a week-long field experience at UConn in the summer and spend the next 7-9 months completing a conservation project in their community. These projects are often a combination of research (many of which use geospatial technology learned from CLEAR faculty at the field experience) and community outreach and have a real impact. The program helps to train a diverse group of students from across the state. The NRCA is primarily funded by private giving and needs your help if you are able to give. Please check out the giving page below, watch the video, and get a small sense of how great this program is!
