At the College of Natural Resources, we learn by doing. Our field campuses and research areas offer a diverse sampling of Idaho's plant and wildlife habitat, including rangelands, forests and aquatic environments. These facilities provide our students unique opportunities for educational and resume-enhancing experiences.
