The mission of CWES is to connect human and natural communities through experience, education, and research.
We accomplish this mission by:
Training and mentoring University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point undergraduate and graduate students in environmental education in an effort to develop the most skilled and sensitive professionals possible.
Providing innovative environmental education experiences based on ecological principles, integrated natural resource management philosophies, balanced perspectives, and inquiry-based methodologies.
Offering outdoor opportunities to recreate, rejuvenate and build strong personal connections to the waters, woods, wildlife, and each other.
Demonstrating sustainable designs and practices based on current research and technology.
Promoting this leadership model in cooperation with the UW-Stevens Point College of Natural Resources.
While many of our staff have pets, and we appreciate the relationship between a pet and its owner, we do not allow pets at CWES. If you are visiting CWES for a day, an overnight, or even to simply drop off or pick up your child for summer camp, please make other arrangements for your pet while you are at CWES.
We are located just 18 miles east of Stevens Point, WI.
