Giving to the School of Natural Resources

Each year, donors give private contributions, from a variety of sources for many purposes, in support of the School of Natural Resources (SNR) departments and programs, funding scholarships, facilities, faculty development and research. These donors, consisting of alumni, parents, faculty and staff and other friends, visibly demonstrate the desire to help improve the quality of education at MU.

We believe that now is the critical time and that wetland management will be greatly affected by our success. Please join us.

To establish the center and to ensure its lasting value to wetland conservation and management, endowments are needed to hire the director, conduct graduate student research and education, and provide active outreach and support to wetland managers.
