Bolle Center for People and Forests

The Bolle Center was established in 1994 to support interdisciplinary education, participatory research, and community outreach to foster resilient and sustainable livelihoods, communities and forests.


The Wyss Scholars Program for Conservation of the American West just announced its 2015 scholars - congratulations to UM students Haley Wiggins and Adam Andis! The Wyss Scholars Program identifies and nurtures a new generation of leaders on western land conservation issues by providing financial support to students who are enrolled in either the CAS or CFC participating degree programs, the School of Law, or the School of Business Administration. Recipients are committed to careers as practicing conservationists of western land, either with a federal, tribal or state land management agency or a non-profit conservation group working in the region.
