Environmental Stewardship

Stewardship in Oregon and beyond is part of our character in the College of Agricultural Sciences, whether that means ensuring the safety of salmon populations, keeping our water supply safe or helping farmers restore native ecosystems while running successful businesses. We do this work with an eye toward the future, and for providing opportunities for our students to keep our planet healthy for future generations.
