Learn How the U.S. Has Approached Establishing Protected Lands
During the 2019 Spring Semester, County College of Morris will debuting its newest initiative called “Project Yellowstone.” The project, which is part of CCM’s Community and Civic Engagement Initiative, focuses on conservation and protected lands, citing examples from Yellowstone National Park and other natural environments.
The project consists of multiple events throughout the semester:
During the 2018 Fall Semester, five CCM professors traveled to Yellowstone National Park with the nonprofit organization Yellowstone Forever. As they traveled through the park, the professors learned a great deal about Native American history, the indigenous wildlife, such as antelopes and bison, and the various geysers that erupt regularly. Lessons learned during this trip are being incorporated into “Project Yellowstone” to create greater awareness about conservation and protected lands.
At CCM, the Community and Civic Engagement initiative offers high-impact, interdisciplinary opportunities to help broaden students’ knowledge of the world and teach them how to positively impact society.
All events are free and open to the public. If interested in attending a “Project Yellowstone” event, please RSVP to [email protected].
