ENVS 0225 - Natural Resource Conservation and Management

Credits: 4

This course will introduce students to common natural resource management techniques and problems through a combination of discussion, lecture, and field investigations. Emphasis will be on conservation and management of terrestrial resources such as forests, wildlife, and energy sources. Students will learn how public and private land managers approach natural resource conservation and how agency mission and landowner objectives determine what practices occur on the landscape. Some labs will consist of field trips and visits with local resource managers to learn how resource management is implemented on the ground. During other labs, students will learn techniques for sampling terrestrial resources, collect field data, and analyze that data to support the development of a management plan for a real property from the point of view of a resource management agency.
