The Center for Collaborative Conservation at CSU is a place where all stakeholders come together to define, discuss, study and act on critical issues affecting the earth's ecosystems and the people who depend upon them.

The center's first associate director

The Center for Collaborative Conservation is pleased to announce that Kimberly Skyelander will be joining the staff as our first associate director.

Kim received her Ph.D. from the University of Idaho in Natural Resources Management and is currently president and executive director of the Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center in Finland, Minn.
