More Natural Resource Management

Despite the challenges and changes to their learning environment, graduate students in the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management are persevering. Now is your chance to support these shining lights of NREM’s Masters of Environmental Management program—and learn how CTAHR students are supporting the environment.

Join in on Wednesday, April 29 at 1:30–2:50, 3:10–3:30, and 4:10–4:50 p.m. via Zoom for the final defenses of seven MS students, ranging from the development of an agroforestry program in state penitentiaries to management of the Ala Wai watershed, from the impact of albatrosses and petrels on native plants to biocultural management plans for ahupua‘a!

“I’m so proud of our graduate students in the Master’s of Environmental Management program and appreciative of the support from their faculty advisers and community collaborators that has helped them achieve this milestone!" says NREM professor Melissa Price. "I know it’s challenging for many graduates this year, since they are only able to celebrate their accomplishments online. I hope our community can really show up (via Zoom!) and show their support!”
