About Nature Reach
Nature Reach is an outreach program of Pittsburg State University's Biology Department and is part of the Department's Life Science Education Program. Nature Reach is supported by fees, grants, and donations.
Our mission is to help educate residents of the four state region about the natural history of this area, as well as local and global environmental issues.
To accomplish this, we provide outreach programs to surrounding schools and communities, and campus tours of our natural history collections.
We conduct teacher in-service workshops using nationally recognized materials from Project WILD, Project WILD Aquatic, Project Learning Tree, and Project WET, or we can customize a workshop for your group or site.
If you find an abandoned or injured raptor in this area, contact the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks at (620)231-3173. You can read about raptors at our raptor page.
