2021 CNR Spring Seminar Series

The 2021 CNR Spring Seminar Series has concluded. Thank you to all who attended! 
Videos of all seminars are available below! 
Check back on our home page for next year's Seminar Series!

The College of Natural Resources at UW-Stevens Point is turning 50! The Wisconsin Center for Wildlife is helping with the celebration by hosting the 2021 Spring Seminar Series, featuring six CNR Alumni and our very own Dean Brian Sloss! Each seminar speaker graduated from a different CNR discipline. Our speakers graduated at different times within the CNR's history. Speakers will share with us the experiences they had while attending the CNR, while beginning their career, and tell us how their respective disciplines have changed over the decades.
