Antioch University New England (AUNE) joined with the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to run an intensive four-day Conservation Psychology Institute (CPI) at Phipps October 13-16. Participants — from such organizations as the World Wildlife Fund, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, and Carnegie Museum of Natural History — learned knowledge and skills in the fields of conservation psychology, environmental psychology, and ecopsychology.
One of the participants, Melissa Harding, an employee of Phipps, blogged about her experience at the institute. Read her blog here.
AUNE is planning to hold another CPI next summer. Keep checking the website for more information or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
