Lackawanna College Environmental Ed Center Accepting Applications For Fall Conservation & Natural Resource Certificate

Lackawanna College Environmental Education Center is accepting applications for their Conservation and Natural Resource Certificate Program. The program is set to begin August 29, 2022, and ends December 16, 2022.

During this 15-week accelerated program, students will complete five undergraduate-level field biology courses at the LCEEC located on 211-acres of diverse habitat in Covington Township, Lackawanna County.

The curriculum focuses on the conservation and interpretation of our natural environment. The program includes instruction in environmental interpretation, wildlife management, freshwater ecosystems, dendrology and ornithology.  

Students will also experience both classroom and hands-on field training throughout the program.

The CNR certificate is appropriate for anyone seeking a career as a park ranger or in a related field. Students may also take individual courses. Courses are transferable into two or four-year degree programs. 

Upon graduation, students will receive a CNR certificate and transcripts of their undergraduate coursework.

Applications are currently being accepted for the Fall 2021 semester and financial aid is available. The CNR program is also approved for WIOA funding for displaced workers or individuals with high financial need. 

Please call PA Career Link for Lackawanna County to verify WIOA funding eligibility.

For more information about the program, please visit the LCEEC Programs webpage or contact Sharon Yanik-Craig at  or call (570) 842-1506.
