About this Group

Group Description
The Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior Club, formerly known as the Headwaters Ecology club, focuses on students in the EEB major, as well as any other students, including grad students, interested in connecting with others having the same interest. It also presents opportunities to learn more about faculty and professionals that have pursued a career in the EEB field. The “headwaters” refers to the beginning of the Mississippi River in Itasca State Park and one of our goals is to plan a weekend trip to the park. At many of our events, we spend time in nature and just hang out with each other! We are a very laid back group and plan events to watch Planet Earth, go to the Minnesota Zoo, stay a weekend at Lake Itasca, and get involved anyway that we can. We are very open to suggestions coming from any member. Once again, you do not need to be an EEB major, in CBS, or an undergrad to join!! Also, please check out our facebook group, "Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior Club."
Group's principal activities, events, or programs:
The Headwaters Ecology club focuses on bringing together those that are interested in Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior (EEB), but is not limited to those in the EEB major. This club promotes trips to CBS field stations (Itasca State Park and Cedar Creek Ecosystem), community service activites (TBD), and getting to know faculty not only in EEB, but also other CBS faculty.
How this group's activities benefit the University community:
Promotion of interaction between faculty and students and the promotion of certain community service activities. Also, when we work with the DNR and volunteer at other locations, the University's name is behind our work.
How this group fits into its categories:
This is an academic and educational group whose goal is to bring together students and faculty. We will do community service related to the environment, as well as plan trips for hikes and other outdoor activities.
How to get involved with this group:
We will be meeting every other week, with some special events on weekends. The day of meetings is TBA. We'll post information about meetings and events on our website (Facebook page) and via our listserv. Contact Rachel Soble for more info, and to get on the listserv.
