Forestry students have been retreating to the woods for over 80 summers, gaining first-hand knowledge no classroom lecture can match. And while many schools are scaling back their summer camp programs, Purdue has expanded the program to include students majoring in aquatic sciences and wildlife.
This 5-week practicum is a required course series for all forestry, aquatic sciences, and wildlife majors in our department typically during the summer following the sophomore year. All students first focus on land measurement and surveying. Followed by specific modules in forest ecosystems, aquatic sciences, forestry and wildlife management. Students pay university tuition plus a fee for living facilities and subsistence.
At this time, only students who are enrolled as majors in forestry, aquatic sciences and wildlife are permitted to enroll in this course series. This summer practicum takes place in Iron River, Michigan at a well-established camp with furnished cabins, a fully staffed kitchen, and facilities to house our classes. Transportation between Purdue and Summer Practicum is provided, but optional.
