Located within the new School of Earth & Sustainability (SES), the Department of Environmental Conservation (ECo) is passionate about our mission – the stewardship of healthy and sustainable ecosystems that provide important human and community benefits – and deeply committed to training the next generation of scholars and practitioners. Our diverse focus includes: sustainable building and construction, natural resource ecology and management (e.g., forests, fish, wildlife, wetlands, watersheds, plants), sustainability, renewable energy, environmental governance and decision-making, global climate change, urban forestry, and conservation. The unifying focus of all these activities is on the stewardship of healthy and sustainable ecosystems that provide important human and community benefits.
In partnership with the Department of Geosciences and the Stockbridge School of Agriculture, SES brings together academic programs, research, and extension from the three departments. ECo is also one of 16 departments in the College of Natural Sciences.
