Nelson Institute in Denver Celebration

April 8
CANCELED, more info below.

We’ve been monitoring rapidly changing conditions and new information about the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Following recent recommendations from public health officials and guidelines established by UW–Madison leadership, we have decided to cancel all alumni events through April 30, 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this cancellation, and we appreciate your continued support of UW–Madison.

50 years ago both the Nelson Institute and Earth Day were created: two testaments to Wisconsin’s long history of environmental leadership. That leadership is woven into the fabric of the university. John Muir, Aldo Leopold, and Gaylord Nelson — the founder of Earth Day — all got their start at the UW. Our campus is the birthplace of restoration ecology, wildlife conservation, water resource science, and so much more. Learn more about the people like you who declared, “Enough. The Earth matters too much to ignore any longer.”

Also be sure to join local Badgers and Paul Robbins, dean of the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, for happy hour at Wally’s Wisconsin Tavern. Enjoy casual conversation and learn from Dean Robbins about the Nelson Institute’s work as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.

There is no cost to attend. Register prior to the event to get one free drink ticket.

Organized by WAA: Mile High Chapter.
