Our graduates are on a mission for conservation, sustainability, education and generating greater awareness of fish resources. 

Nearly 75 percent of the United States’ farm-fresh trout is cultivated along the Snake River.

Elective courses in wildlife science provide an opportunity to gain additional knowledge in a special area of interest or to broaden into other fields. One season of approved work experience or internship before graduation is required.
