This degree program prepares graduates to work in state, private, county, municipal, and federal parks as assistant park rangers and in associated positions. Park management includes interpreting plant and animal ecology to the general public. Rangers are responsible for constructing and maintaining trails, campgrounds, and facilities. They collect fees, explain and enforce park rules, and promote public safety.

Students may enter the Natural Resources program in any quarter, however many natural resources courses are only offered one time each year. Course sequencing is important! Complete prerequisite as early as possible.
