Natural Resources Recreation Society

The Natural Resource Recreation Society is a student organization devoted to enhancing educational opportunities within natural resources recreation and related fields. Our goals are to promote networking among students, faculty, and professionals, and to encourage lasting friendships through volunteerism and other activities. As our primary emphases are educational and professional opportunities, this kind of learning that we do "field work" such as camping, hiking and canoeing.

Throughout the semester the Natural Resource Recreation Society sponsors guest speakers, holds "socials" (a.k.a. potluck dinners), and takes field trips. We do not limit membership to recreation majors; in fact we encourage all students to attend our events.
