Studying the vibrant connection between people and earth’s most special places is an increasingly important area of natural resource management. Within the College of Natural Resources the resource recreation and tourism program is nationally recognized for excellence in doing just that.
Our program is led by skilled faculty members and fosters a vibrant research community that produces accomplished graduates. These groups are, and continue to be, instrumental in shaping policies that define and protect our public wildlands.
Their expertise also delineates how wild spaces interface with our expanding urban corridors. If you’re interested in gaining the skills and expertise needed to influence human behavior in order to better conserve and enjoy our environment, you’ve come to the right place.
Together we’re uncovering strategies to better care for and enjoy the world's most special places.
