Students as Catalysts for Large Landscape Conservation

The Environmental Studies Program at Colby College, in conjunction with partner universities, colleges, and research institutions, hosted a conference on March 1, 2013 in Waterville, Maine, that focused on students as catalysts for large landscape conservation.

This conference provided students, practitioners, and scholars with the opportunity to network with, and learn from, peers and leading experts from North America and beyond working in the field of large landscape conservation.

One feature of the conference was a conservation innovation contest for students. Undergraduate and graduate students were invited to submit essays or creative contributions, such as videos. Authors of winning contributions received travel reimbursements to attend the conference up to $500. One essay was considered for inclusion in a forthcoming book on large landscape conservation to be published by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy. Additional essays were considered for publication in an issue of an international conservation journal.
