Field Applications in Resource Management

Course Overview


The purpose of this two-week field camp course is to provide students with an overall professional-level integration of forest resource management that draws on the student's collective undergraduate experiences.
Field camp provides a setting for students, instructors, and resource professionals to discuss, apply and integrate principles from undergraduate course and lab work, field and employment experiences.
Our resource management students will have the opportunity to gain practical experience applying creative and innovative integrated resource management skills and techniques, to manage non-timber forest resource values at multiple temporal and spatial scales.
This Field Camp will also provide third-year students with a foundation for fourth-year courses, that require knowledge of multiple resource values and issues, as well as integration of this knowledge.
This course is taught in a modular format with the content being delivered by local experts working in the field of integrated resource management, in a setting that promotes discussion and teamwork.
