ABOUT CNUW AND ITS MISSION The Center for Native and Urban WIldlife (CNUW) was developed by the College’s Life Science faculty in 2000. CNUW was built into the framework of the Biology Department to pursue a mission of:
- Educating people about the importance of conserving desert habitats and its biodiversity.
- Maintaining, enhancing and restoring public and private open spaces to benefit native and urban biodiversity.
- Providing opportunities for individuals and groups to contribute to the recovery, preservation and study of the Sonoran Desert.
COME JOIN US! CNUW has created a wealth of hands-on learning opportunities for SCC students interested in conservation biology, restoration ecology, wildlife biology, ecological research and elementary education.
The community may choose from many distinct learning experiences involving collaborative activities for students, staff and faculty from many different campus departments, local and state agencies. These activities enable learners to achieve lifelong educational, professional, and personal goals and include:
- Butterfly Banding Project
- 4th Grade Biodiversity Tours
- Solitary Bee Diversity Studies
- Campus Bird Surveys
- Field Trips
- Native Seed Germination Studies
- Desert Restoration Projects
