Integrating forest, range, and wildlife sciences
The mission of the Department of Wildland Resources is to achieve excellence in integrating forest, range, and wildlife sciences, while building knowledge to assist in understanding, restoring, and conserving terrestrial ecosystems. As educators, we mentor students at undergraduate and graduate levels, synthesizing established knowledge and cutting-edge research into a dynamic and highly relevant curriculum. As researchers, we apply internationally recognized scientific expertise, an interdisciplinary approach, and a collaborative spirit to develop innovative solutions for the conservation and management of the natural resources of our changing planet. As extension professionals, we help the people on the land understand and use research-based knowledge to improve their livelihoods through enlightened stewardship of ecosystem goods and services.
