Environmental Studies students have many opportunities to gain valuable experience as volunteers for conservation projects on campus and in the surrounding community. In past years, Environmental Studies students have volunteered on organic garden projects, helped to build trails, and removed invasive species among many other interesting projects.
After graduating from Denison in 1997 with his degree in Environmental Studies and a concentration in Biology, Greg Spyreas attended Southern Illinois University for a masters degree in Plant Biology/Plant Ecology where he became interested in natural areas of biology, conservation, and restoration.
Denison University is committed to nurturing ecological sustainability both on campus and in the world beyond. We recognize that environmental responsibility is a way of life, not just a trend.
