Faculty receives grant to continue GLADE Program
Dr. Janice Greene, professor of biology received a grant of $14,800 from the Greater Ozarks Audubon Society to continue the funding of the “Green Leadership Academy for Diverse Ecosystems (GLADE)” program.
The project allows the Greater Ozarks Audubon Society, Missouri Department of Conservation and Missouri State University to join forces in conservation and education. Each summer, 16 conservation-oriented high school students are selected to participate in this week-long residential summer camp.
The mission of the GLADE is to provide students with the knowledge and skills for the care of Ozarks ecosystems, restore critical habitat for endangered species in Missouri, develop informed community leaders and inspire students to develop environmental projects in their own communities.
For more information, contact Greene at (417) 836-5306.
