NEMO benefits from partnerships at many levels.

UConn Partners

The original project was, and continues to be, a partnership between the Department of Extension, Connecticut Sea Grant and the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment. In addition, programmatic support comes from collaboration with NEMO’s closely associated sister programs of the UConn Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR), including the Geospatial Technology Program (GTP) and the Connecticut Land Use Academy.
