The environment is the blackboard for the Center's educational programs; the common ground that brings us together with the natural world and people from around the globe to share our concerns for one another and the future. It is through positive and shared experience that we hope can affect the values and actions of our people to create a world of harmonious diversity.
To protect, improve, and promote the enjoyment of the natural environment through formal and informal educational programs and research; to assist and encourage environmental programs, centers, and careers.
