Practical, hands-on, outdoor activities and a low faculty to student ratio is typical in the Natural Resources Conservation curriculum. An example of a course activity is a student operated timber sale on college property. Students do all the necessary activities including contact preparations. No other two year program anywhere can match the diversity of offerings we have in 38 environmental courses.
