Natural Resources and Society


We may be biased, but we feel there’s no better place to study resource recreation and tourism than the Palouse! From golden rolling wheat fields, to Moscow Mountain which offers beautiful forested hiking and mountain biking, nearby rivers, forests and Wilderness Areas, the opportunities for exploring and learning outdoors are truly endless.

Beyond the natural classroom of our home on the Palouse, Idaho contains more roadless acres and Wilderness than any other state in the lower 48. More than 50 peaks boast elevations over 10,000 feet. Idaho is home to some hallowed names of wild rivers like Hells Canyon, Selway, and the Middle Fork of the Salmon that are known to river runners worldwide.

In addition, our on-campus labs and facilities, along with those that we share with other programs within College of Natural Resources will help you thrive.
