Course Description: 

In this course, students will assess the role of non-governmental organizations (NGOs, non-profit organizations) in the conservation and preservation of our natural resources. These roles can include land ownership and stewardship, education, advocacy, technical assistance and others. NGOs come in many shapes and sizes, from world-wide multi-million dollar organizations (e.g., Nature Conservancy, World Wildlife Fund) to small organizations run entirely by volunteers with minimal budgets.
