The Center for the Environmental Management of Military Lands is a service, education, and research unit in Colorado State University’s Warner College of Natural Resources. We have supported military readiness and resource conservation for more than three decades. Our experience and the resources of CSU allow us to tailor and apply innovative, practical methods to meet the needs of diverse managers of public lands.
CEMML works closely with the Department of Defense, US Army Corps of Engineers, National Park Service, and other departments and agencies through cooperative agreements, grants, and contracts. Our resource management and planning, research, education, and outreach efforts inform military and other federal managers as they meet their dual mandates of using and conserving public-trust resources.
A high proportion of CEMML’s researchers and technicians work full-time at federal and military installations. The strategic placement of staff at these installations facilitates consistent service and problem-solving.
CEMML also employs a diverse range of professionals directly at the CSU campus. CEMML is part of a land grant university that has one of the most comprehensive natural and cultural resource colleges in the nation.
