Environmental Interpretive Center building

Environmental sustainability through community education and scientific research

We are the gateway to the 300-acre Environmental Study Area available to university students, school groups, and the public.

Our mission is to promote a healthy environment through education, applied research, community engagement and stewardship. Our integrated educational programs and research activities focus on raising public awareness of environmental issues and developing and implementing strategies for creating cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable communities.

The EIC is open from 9 - 3 Monday through Friday. 

Check out our Education & Programs page for nature-based activities and virtual programs.
