This degree program prepares graduates to work in a variety of outdoor careers. The growing awareness of water quality, wetland protection, reforestation, and environmentally sensitive timber harvest requires the services of technicians with a broad knowledge base. People who are trained to measure and sample the forest, its wildlife, streams and wetlands will enhance their employment opportunities.
