Club Fair and Welcome Back Picnic
Club Fair and Welcome Back Picnic

Did you know SNR has five dedicated (and affiliates) student clubs? Come learn more about them at the East Campus welcome back picnic and club fair from 4 to 7 p.m. Aug. 29 on the East Campus mall. The event is free for all University of Nebraska-Lincoln students.

School of Natural Resources clubs include:

  • Latins for Natural Resources, a club is dedicated to bringing together the Latino American community on both Nebraska campuses to expand the community of nature lovers. Meetings are in both Spanish and English. The group also provides a safe, welcoming, all-inclusive space for students, no matter their heritage or gender.
  • Soil Judging Team, a club that ties together theory taught in the classroom with the reality in the field through competition. Teams dig pits and trenches to closely examine the soil profile, judging texture, structure, color and hydrology. They also look for signs indicating the soil's origin and recent care of the soil and describe the landscape setting. Teams whose evaluations come closest to those of the contest officials score the highest. Regional competition precedes the national contest, to which the top three teams from each region are invited.
  • UNL Student Subunit of the American Fisheries Society, a club for undergraduate and graduate students interested in the fisheries profession. The purpose of the AFS Subunit is to promote professional development in the field of fishery and aquatic resource science, encourage exchange of regional fisheries and other technical information, and address issues that affect Nebraska's aquatic resources. Annual activities include hosting a fishing tournament for members of the subunit and Nebraska Chapter AFS, and assisting the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission fishery biologists with management activities at Bowling Lake in Lincoln.
  • Wildlife Club, a club that provides guidance and further knowledge about specific wildlife; promotes and stimulates interest in wildlife; provides for the cultural and social development of members; provides opportunities to develop leadership; furthers cooperation with organizations concerned with wildlife; and acquaints interested students and faculty members with the wildlife field.
  • Sustain UNL, a club that provides opportunities for students to promote awareness and action in regards to matters of sustainability, in and around the UNL campus. Through the motto of Reuse Rethink Recycle the club encourages participation by anyone with interest in making lasting change. Each year Sustain UNL takes part in activities and competitions while partnering with other organizations and companies to further our message of acting to create progress in the field of sustainability.
  • Soil and Water Resources Club, a club for students who want hands-on activity with environmental projects and demonstrations, who want to learn about career opportunities in environmental sciences and ecological engineering, and who want to gain social and leadership skills.
