Natural Resources Summer Practicum​​

Forestry students have been retreating to the woods for over 70 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 fisheries and aquatic sciences and wildlife.

 

Scenes from FNR 370 located to the right, gives you a quick view of the experiences you will gain: hands on outdoor lab work, introduction to equipment and building relationships with fellow classmates.

 

FNR 370 is field instruction and practice during the summer following the sophomore year. All students focus on land measurement and surveying, inventory of forest, wildlife, and aquatic resources, and integrated resource management. Followed by specific modules in fisheries, foresty, and wildlife management. Students pay university tuition plus a fee for living facilities and subsistence.
