  • Neighbor Nights

    Neighbor Nights is a community event series at NGRREC held from 6 - 8 p.m. on the third Tuesday of every month throughout the year. Neighbor Nights is an excellent time for you, our river neighbor, to come and learn more about the great rivers of the world, the watersheds that feed them, and the communities that use them. It's also an opportunity to learn more about our LEED-certified field station.

    Each event offers something different and highlights a unique project led by one of our researchers, educators, conservationists or community partners so make sure to check back for more information about upcoming topics and join us for a few of your favorites!

    Neighbor Nights events are currently being offered both in-person and virtually. Masks are recommended for all in-person participants. Those attending virtually will be able to watch the entire presentation and participate with questions via Zoom chat.
