Forestry and Natural Resources

Forestry and Natural Resources (FNR) focuses on the conservation and restoration of the earth's natural resources through hands-on study of the ecology, stewardship, and management of forest, woodland, and grassland ecosystems. The program offers concentrations in natural sciences or in human dimensions of natural resources, and if the student chooses, can qualify the student for taking the Registered Professional Forester's licensing exam in California.
