Since 2005 the Bucknell University Environmental Center (BUEC) has provided a venue for interdisciplinary teaching, research, and outreach related to the environment. The Center brings together faculty, staff, and students from each of the university's four divisions. The Environmental Center also offers exhibits of native plant gardens, organic food gardens, stormwater management, and renewable energy sources. The photo below is of dwarf crested iris, Iris cristata, a native Pennsylvania perennial that is part of the Center's front-yard woodland landscaping.

Our Mission

The Bucknell University Environmental Center seeks to integrate perspectives from the natural and social sciences, humanities, and engineering to enhance faculty, staff, student, and community understanding of complex contemporary environmental issues and of the interaction between nature and human beings in traditions throughout the ages. The center supports faculty, staff, and students dedicated to environmental and nature-related learning, teaching, scholarship, service, and action at local, regional, national, and international levels.
