Environmental Studies 411, or Environmental Community Projects, is a culminating experience requirement for both Environmental Studies and Geography majors at Bucknell University. Seniors in Environmental Studies 411 draw upon their previous coursework to collaborate with community organizations and community members to achieve meaningful community project goals. We have been privileged to collaborate with the Merrill W. Linn Conservancy on their native plant garden at the East Buffalo Township municipal property. We hope this WordPress site will contribute to the success of the garden long-term. This project was a great opportunity to participate in community life outside of Bucknell, and the experiences we gained through our collaboration will remain with us long after we graduate.
