The SENR Seminar Series is held during the autumn and spring academic semesters. Speakers address a variety of topics that are relevant to the major environmental problems and natural resource management issues of our day. The seminar series reflects the multi-disciplinary nature of the School of Environment and Natural Resources in that a variety of experts contribute from fields as diverse as the humanities and social sciences, traditional resource management disciplines, and the biological and physical sciences. The program includes opportunities for interested parties to meet formally and informally with speakers before and after their presentations.
