Natural Resource Management

Natural resource management addresses how people and natural landscapes interact. In this field, you can specialize in:

  • Forestry
  • Fisheries
  • Water resources
  • Grazing and rangeland management
  • Wildlife biology
  • Outdoor recreation

Through internships, tailored programs, and hands-on experiences, you will learn about land management, water, soils, plants, wildlife, conservation, and restoration.

An interdisciplinary approach develops scientific and technical understanding of resources and the ecology of those resources. Evergreen's unique location in the heart of the Pacific Northwest and in the Capitol city of Olympia provide a multitude of opportunities to work with:

  • National parks
  • National forests
  • Refuges
  • Forest management companies
  • Conservation groups
  • Marine life management, and state and local government.

In addition, Evergreen's 1,000-acre forest reserve, five free-flowing streams, open shoreline, organic farm, shellfish club, and extended field trip opportunities provide opportunities to practice in the development and implementation of management plans.

Opportunities for internships with local, private, state, and federal agencies provide direct experiences working with people doing natural resource management activities close to the college. Find careers all over the world in natural resource management based on your real-world experiences and opportunities.

Join fellow students in learning to understand and work with the natural resources and ecosystems that sustain us!
