The Nina Mason Pulliam EcoLab is committed to education about the environment through interaction with the environment. The NMP EcoLab property is a 55-acre natural area on the Marian University campus where environmental restoration began 100 years ago with esteemed landscape architect, Jens Jensen and continues today with Marian students, K-12 school groups, and the general public.
Marian University students and faculty use the NMP EcoLab in their classes as a site for hands-on experience in the natural environment. It also provides a great location for undergraduate research and for internships in ecological restoration and environmental education.
The NMP EcoLab hosts outstanding science programs for all ages and a comprehensive array of environmental resources for Pre K-12 students and teachers. Through a Nina Mason Pulliam EcoLab experience, be it at the NMP EcoLab itself, at your site, or even via interactive videoconferencing, participants will increase their knowledge and appreciation of the environment, while also being inspired to learn and do more to preserve our precious natural resources.
