Our alumni are not just university students, or even just biology majors. There are many of you outside that category we hope will participate in the future of CPBS. We consider everyone alumni who has had the pleasure to stay at Cedar Point, from the Girls Scout in the '60s, church camp in the '70s, to the faculty and researchers who have used it since.
Though CPBS is funded by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, we still need help raising money for upkeep, student scholarships, equipment maintainance, research funding, and more! Cedar Point has had a profound impact on so many lives; this is evident by the number of people who stop by to see us every summer. An important part of our success is the gifts that alumni give to Cedar Point. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to Cedar Point Biological Station's general fund, we would appreciate your gift and will put it to good use! Gifts can be made through the University of Nebraska Foundation. With state and federal funds becoming more scarce, your gift is more important than ever!
The Cedar Point Alumni Directory is currently being developed. We are also working on a newsletter to keep alumni up-to-date of all the current CPBS developments, and a store to help further donations for CPBS! For now, if you would like to keep up with what's going on at campus, follow our blog here or our Facebook page here.
We have a new ListServ (CPBS-Friends@unl.edu) as of November 2014. This is part of a growing effort to create a formal Friends of CPBS and general access to informal user discussion about everything and anything Cedar Point Experience. To subscribe: Send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will add your email address into the list. If you haven't been out to the station in a while we would very much like to hear a little about your personal Cedar Point Experience.
