Wildlife and Conservation
Do you have an interest in the environment, wildlife, and wild places? Are you interested in sustainability and green energy? Do you enjoy being involved in outdoor activities?
Then the Doane Wildlife and Conservation Organization (W.A.C.O.) may be for you!
Activities include camping and canoeing on the Niobrara River and camping at the Lewis and Clark Recreation Area. Day trips have included observing the hawk and eagle migration at Hitchcock Nature Center and wildlife at the DeSoto Wildlife Refuge. We have also assisted in enlarging the college disc golf course. We also work to conserve our tiger mascot in the wild through our involvement in the Tigers for Tigers Coalition.
