Join us for Science Thursdays!

This virtual event series gives attendees an up-close look at some of the science that drives our conservation work in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and beyond.

March 23: Indigenizing Science, Anishinaabe Gikendaasowin Program at Leech Lake Tribal College (LLTC)

Tribal colleges and universities have been at the forefront of Indigenizing higher education to be more reflexive and responsive to Native American students. At Leech Lake Tribal College, the Anishinaabe Gikendaasowin degree program centers environmental research with Anishinaabe values at the core of both the curriculum and research agenda. As part of preparing the next generation of scientists and resource managers, LLTC has partnered with TNC to build more opportunities and stronger mentorships for students. Join Dr. Annette Drewes (TNC) and Melinda Neville (LLTC) as they share programs and priorities in Indigenizing Science.

Science Thursdays are a monthly event series where TNC and partners share their findings from on-the-ground conservation science. Anyone and everyone who wants to learn more about science and conservation at TNC is invited to join. Learn more and register for this event.
