  • My Profile - the form should be autopopulated with your information if you're logged in, and this is where you can edit your Alumni Profile.
  • Alumni Directory Search – this is an online directory where you can search for fellow alumni by name, location, activities, or hobbies. Find old friends and connect with new ones!
  • Alumni Forum – start a discussion, ask a question, initiate a get-together. It’s your space!
  • Donate - Over the years, annual donations from alumni have been instrumental in fostering our growth as a stronger, more cohesive, and more effective organization in driving science-based conservation action. Your support helps us tremendously, and we appreciate it! Donations are tax-deductible, and may be eligible for a matching gift from your employer.
  • Alumni Facebook page – connect with other alumni on Facebook!
  • Write a review – tell the world about the good work NatureServe is doing by writing a review on Great Non-Profits. Your testimony helps to persuade potential donors and funders that NatureServe is  making a difference. Plus, you can see what other people wrote, too.

Upcoming Events:

  • Biodiversity Without Boundaries 2013 – April 14-18, Baltimore, MD. We would love to have alumni join us! You can come just for the Monday night networking reception, or just for the Tuesday night presentation of the NatureServe Conservation Award. Or, pick from over 100 workshops, field trips, and plenaries, including tracks on climate change, science and methodology, technology and tools, ecosystem services, our new coastal/marine strategy, our leadership development program, and much more.
