All Staff Reunion, April 9-10, 2022

Since 1952, Southern Illinois University’s Touch of Nature Environmental Center has been referred to as the “crown jewel” of the SIU system.  This kind of praise could never have been achieved without the hard work and dedication of its staff.

The All Staff Reunion planned for April, 2020 was canceled due to the onset of the global pandemic.  It is our hope to hold it Friday and Saturday, April 9-10, 2022

In the meantime, like our SIU Touch of Nature Alumni Facebook page and join the appropriate group based on when you worked at Touch of Nature.  Share your photographs, memories and tall stories.  See whose faces you recognize on Throwback Thursdays. 

Don’t do Facebook, not a problem.  Send us your reflections and testimonials by email at, or mail us at:
