CWES is a 200-acre teaching and learning center located 17 miles east of Stevens Point on glacial Sunset Lake. They are part of the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point College of Natural Resources program and are staffed with professional natural resource and environmental educators. Their mission is to foster in adults and youth the appreciation, understanding, skill development, and motivation needed to help them build a sustainable balance between the environment, economy, and community. Since our program’s inception, we have held our member orientation at CWES. Members have been able to meet their peers, learn about their upcoming service terms, and participate in team building exercises while being immersed in nature.
