University Accredited Workshops

A variety of workshops are available for college credit in cooperation with Cameron University based in Lawton, OK.

Participants will take part in outdoor activities, research and journaling sessions to become more aware of, and involved with, current environmental issues. Learn to examine human biases and value judgments as they apply to wildlife, habitat and the use of natural resources. Subjects include bio-diversity and environmental ethics; the ecology of Wichita Mountains and its prairies; a diversity of wildlife found on the refuge, including elk, eagles and migratory birds; and how all of this fits in on a global scale. These workshops are in high demand and filled to capacity with enrolled students with a waiting list of students eager to fill the cancelled slots.
